This letter proposes a method based on primary-dual iteration to address the array pattern synthesis problem of minimizing the peak sidelobe level (PSL) under the constraints of controlled mainlobe ripples and dynamic range ratio (DRR) of current excitations. Especially, when DRR=1, the phase-only beampattern synthesis problem is solved. Simulation examples are presented to verify the effectiveness of the proposed method in terms of PSL and DRR.
