New PDF release: Antenna Theory and Design, 2nd Edition

By Warren L. Stutzman

Hugely revered authors have reunited to replace the well-known 1981 version that is nonetheless hailed as the most effective in its box. This version comprises fresh antenna concepts and functions. It contains a succinct remedy of the finite distinction, time area (FDTD) computational process. it's also the 1st textual content to regard actual thought of diffraction (PTD).

This educational assumes no past wisdom of scripting or programming, yet progresses swiftly towards an intermediate/advanced point of guideline . .. all of the whereas sneaking in little snippets of UNIX knowledge and lore. It serves as a textbook, a guide for self-study, and a reference and resource of data on shell scripting strategies.

It has a maximum value of unity at u = 0; this corresponds to 6 = 90°, where u = (,BLl2) cos 6. Substituting 6 = 90° in (1-114) gives unity and we see that F(6) is properly normalized. In general, a normalized field pattern can be written as the product I F(6, c/J) = gee, c/J )f(6, c/J) I (1-115) where g(6, c/J) is the element factor and f(6, c/J) the pattern factor. The pattern factor comes from the integral over the current and is strictly due to the distribution of current in space. The element factor is the pattern of an infinitesimal current element in the current distribution.

8 Directivity and Gain 39 The average radiation intensity follows from the total radiated power expression (1-75) for an ideal dipole as Uave _ p _ ({3wpJ127T)(1 aZ)2 _ ! 5Uave for the ideal dipole, which means that in the direction of maximum radiation, the radiation intensity is 50% more than that which would occur from an isotropic source radiating the same total poweL Directivity. Directivity is defined as the ratio of the radiation intensity in a certain direction to the average radiation intensity, or D((), cf» = U( (), cf» (1-140) Uave If we divide the numerator and denominator by r2, then we have power densities.

This follows directly from the definitions. 6 Radiation Pattern Parameters A typical antenna power pattern is shown in Fig. 1-15 as a polar plot in linear units (rather than decibels). It consists of several lobes. The main lobe (or main beam or major lobe) is the lobe containing the direction of maximum radiation. There is also usually a series of lobes smaller than the main lobe. Any lobe other than the main lobe is called a minor lobe. Minor lobes are composed of side lobes and back lobes. Back lobes are directly opposite the main lobe, or sometimes they are taken to be the lobes in the half-space opposite the main lobe.
