Part 1 : Antenna Therody and Design
- Introduction: Types of Antenna, Radiation Mechanism. Antenna Terminology: Radiation pattern, radiation power density, radiation intensity, directivity, gain, antenna efficiency, half power beam width, bandwidth, antenna polarization, input impedance, antenna radiation efficiency,effective length, effective area, reciprocity. Radiation Integrals: Vector potentials A, J, F, M, Electric and magnetic fields electric and magnetic current sources, solution of inhomogeneous vector potential wave equation, far field radiation
- Wire Antennas : Infinitesimal dipole, small dipole, and finite length dipole half wave length dipole, small circular loop antenna. Complete Analytical treatment of all these elements. Unit V
- Antenna Arrays: Two element array, pattern multiplication N-element linear array, uniform amplitude and spacing, broad side and end-fire array, N-element array
- Patch antenna design
Part 2: Transmission lines and matching circuits
In this part the students will learn about designing an electronics circuits that minimize the reflected signals and optimize the transmission signal.
