Terminologies & Measurements

Radiation pattern

• A trace or a Graphical representation of power, gain, intensity, field

strength in a particular space co-ordinates

• By keeping two co-ordinates constant, and varying the third, the

patterns can be drawn.

• For example:

• r and φ are kept constant, for various θ, the power at a far-field

distance can be…

Polar plot

• Most convenient plot is “Polar plot” for radiation graphs.

• Θ will be called as “Elevation” angle (o to 180)

• Φ as “Azimuthal” angle (0 to 360)

θ

φ

Practical antennas are Directional • Directional: The maximum power or gain will be in particular direction of φ or θ • Omni-directional: It’s special type in Directional. . like circular radiation pattern • Isotropic antenna is an ideal. – In azimuthal or Elevation angles the antenna is isotropic and directional in either. unrealizable antenna. Isotropic and Directional • Isotropic: a lossless antenna having equal radiation in all direction.

Radiation pattern .Lobes • A quantitative portions of radiation pattern are Lobes • Major radiated energy bounded by “Major- Lobe”. the zero radiation points are Major lobes called “Null points” Major lobe Back lobe . • Minor lobes are still classified into “Side lobes” and “Back lobes” • Between two lobe. and others are “Minor Lobes”.

Null ponits • Each Radiation pattern will have many number of lobes.. . they are refered as 1st . • With symmetry.Null ponits . 2nd . so many number of Null points will be there.

and maximum power direction also within Major lob. • Our aim also. that much directional . Beam Level • Maximum power is taken by Major lob. obviously. called “Side lobe level” or “Side lobe ratio” As much as bigger the ratio. to get maximum power within Major lobe • To define the side lobes: How smaller the side lobes are or which level they are with respect to major lobe.

over how much angle at least half of the power is radiated?. • For example. that much directive. The angle difference or range the arc occupies over the major lobe is “HPBW”. make a arc. Half Power Beam width • In Major lobe itself. it maximum power radiated is 12dB. called “Half power Beam width” (HPBW). place the 9dB point (ie 12dB-3dB). 3dB point Simply as minimum HPBW. φHPWB Max .

• This is useful measure to define the Major Lobe . the angle between first null points is called FNBW. First Null Beam width • On both side of symmetry. • FNBW will be always bigger than HPBW.

Compare! For same Yagi-Uda antenna. different radiation pattern got. which is high directive??! .

Take a problem • A normalized radiation power intensity is described for an antenna as: U = sin 2 θ sin 2 φ ind the Half power beam width for Azimuthal and Elevation ang .

so we can say “2π rad” for full circle • One steradian: A solid angle for which the R2 circumference area created by radius R (3-D). . – So a solid sphere will have “4π sr” for full. Radian and Steradian • One Radian: the angle for which the vertex is equal to radius (2-D) – For example: A circle of radius R will have circumference of C=2πR.

Radiation Power Density • If the Electric and Magnetic Field created by an antenna are E and H. then the average power can be calculated using poynting vector • • 1 [ Wavg ( x.ds ] • 2 s • Prad Wrad = aˆ r • Then the power radiated: 2 4πr . y. z ) = Re E × H ∗ 2 ] • • Prad 1 [ ∗ = ∫ ∫Re E × H .

dφ . dΩ isΩcalled Unit 0 0 solid angle = sinθ. Radiation Intensity • Power radiated from an antenna per solid angle – Mostly it’s considered in Far-Field condition – U = r 2Wrad – Here U=radiation intensity (W/unit solid angle Ω) – Wrad = radiation density (W/m2) • From this total power can be obtained. 2π π Prad = ∫ ∫Ud Ω = ∫ ∫U sin θ.dθ.dθ.dφ – Where.

dθ.dθ. Problem-A • Find the total power radiated for U=A0sinθ 2π π Prad = ∫ ∫Ud Ω = ∫ ∫U sin θ.dφ 0 0 = π 2 A0 .dφ Ω 0 0 2π π Prad = ∫ ∫ sin 2 θ.

• Defined as “the ratio of the radiation intensity in a given direction from the antenna to the radiation intensity averaged over all direction” U U D= = U 0 Prad 4π U max U max Umax is the maximum radiation D0 = Dmax = = U0 Prad intensity. specifies the measure of directionality of an antenna. found maximum power 4π direction . Directivity • Also called “directive gain”.

Problem-B • Calculate the directivity and maximum directivity for the Problem-A .

Problem-C • If the average power calculated over θ is defined as A0 sin 2 θ Wavg = aˆ r r 2 .

• The Maximum directivity can be approximated as 4π 4π D0 = = Ω A θ HPBW φ HPBW – ΩA is called Beam Solid angle(Sr) – To convert to degrees. divide ΩA by (180/π) • It’s further approximated to 4π (180 / π ) 2 41.253 D0 = = θ HPBW φ HPBW θ HPBW φ HPBW .

U=A0cosθ – The radiation exits in upper half alone (0≤θ≤π/2. 0≤φ≤2π) . Problem-D • Calculate the maximum directivity for the radiation intensity.

“the ratio in the radiation intensity. • The Absolute gain is defined as. = 4π . in the text book. in the given direction. • Prad = ecd .Pin • • ecd is “radiation efficiency”. Radiation intensity U (θ . to the accepted power of isotropic radiation intensity”. φ ) • Gain = 4π . • In other words. Gain • Measure of efficiency and directivity can explicitly seen in Antenna gain. a dimensionless quantity. Total input power Pin • • Here input power can be related to radiated power by. .

Relation between Gain and directivity • While replacing the Input power in-terms of radiated power. φ ) = ecd .D0 (θ . we can say the Maximum gain as • • G0 (θ . Prad • • From this relation.000 G0 = θ HPBW φ HPBW . • U (θ . φ ) G (θ .(for complicated radiation patterns) 30. φ ) = ecd .D(θ . φ ) • Gain = e cd 4π . φ ) • Approximated to.

For lossless antenna. which highly depending in the area. since the practical antennas are lossy and not matched properly – they will have efficiency of less than one. • The total radiation efficiency is e0 = e r ec e d (Zin −Z0 ) – er = reflection efficiency=(1-Г2) Γ = Z + Z in 0 – ec = conduction efficiency – ed = dielectric efficiency • For simplicity.ec=ecd ”. the “er. shape and material of antenna. Radiation efficiency • Describes the how much of input power is utilized for radiation. ecd =1 .

and calculate the reflection efficiency using impedance • Since Lossless. is to be connected to a transmission line whose characteristics impedance is 50Ω. e0=0.14dB . If the radiation intensity of that antenna is U=B0sin3θ. Problem-A • A lossless resonant half-wave dipole antenna. ecd =1 • Finally calculate in-terms of dB • Answers: D0=1. with input impedance of 73Ω.697. – Soultion • Find D0. find the Maximum gain of the antenna.636=2.965. G0=1.

which can be represent as • Z A = R A + jX A • • Amount of energy stored Amount of energy left • • For a good antenna. The resistance is further classified by “Radiation resistance” and “Loss resistance”. called Input Impedance. Input Impedance • The radiation of Electric and Magnetic field components are defined by ratio of voltage to current at the input of antenna. the resistance part should be greater than reactance. as • R A = Rr + R L .
