Antenna Theory and Design, 2nd Edition by Warren L. Stutzman

By Warren L. Stutzman

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

Input impedance is composed of real and imaginary parts: (1-165) The input resistance RA represents dissipation, which occurs in two ways. , radiation) is a form of dissipation. There are also ohmic losses associated with heating on the antenna structure, but on many antennas ohmic losses are small compared to radiation losses. However, ohmic losses are usually significant on electrically small antennas, which have dimensions much less than a wavelength. The input reactance X A represents power stored in the near field of the antenna.

It is referred to as an omnidirectional pauern since it is uniform in the xy-plane. Omnidirectional antennas are very popular in ground-based applications with the omnidirectional plane horizontal. When encountering new antennas, the reader should attempt to visualize the complete pattern in three dimensions. 2 Radiation from Line Currents Radiation patterns in general can be calculated in a manner similar to that used for the ideal dipole if the current distribution on the antenna is known. This is done by first finding the vector potential given in (1-58).

A pattern taken in a plane perpendicular to an E-plane and cutting through the test antenna (the xy-plane in this case) is called an H-plane pattern because it contains the magnetic field Hcf>. The E- and H-plane patterns, in general, are referred to as principal plane patterns. The E- and H-plane patterns for the ideal dipole are shown in Figs. l-lOb and l-lOc. These are polar plots in which the distance from the origin to the curve is proportional to the field intensity; they are often called polar patterns or polar diagrams.
