In fact, the 41,253 is really wrong (it is derived assuming a rectangular beam footprint instead of the correct elliptical one). 28. 28Approximate directivity fordirectional patternsCan calculate directivity directly (sect.2.5),can evaluate directivity numerically (sect. 2.6)(when integral for Prad cannot be done analytically,analytical formulas cannot be used ) 29. 29GainLike directivity but also takes into account efficiency of antenna(includes reflection, conductor, and dielectric losses) oinoinZZZZ ;12eo : overall : reflection : conduction eff.ed : dielectric eff.Efficiency source) isotropic(lossless,PUPUeDeGinmaxradmaxooooabs 44 dcroeeee dccdeee[2-49c]radcdinPeP radoincPeP 30. 30GainBy IEEE definition gain does not include losses arising from impedancemismatches (reflection losses) and polarization mismatches (losses) source) isotropic(lossless,PUDeGinmaxocdo 4[2-49a] 31. 31Bandwidthfrequency range over which some characteristic conforms to a standardPattern bandwidthBeamwidth, side lobe level, gain, polarization, beam directionpolarization bandwidth example: circular polarization with axial ratio < 3 dBImpedance bandwidthusually based on reflection coefficientunder 2 to 1 VSWR typical 32. 32BandwidthBroadband antennasusually use ratio (e.g. 10:1)Narrow band antennasusually use percentage (e.g. 5%) 33. 33PolarizationLinearCircularEllipticalRight or left handedrotation in time 34. 34PolarizationPolarization loss factorp is angle between wave and antenna polarization22 coswapPLF[2-71] 35. 35Input impedanceRatio of voltage to current at terminals of antennaZA = RA + jXARA = Rr + RLRr = radiation resistanceRL = loss resistanceZA = antenna impedance at terminals a-b 36. 36Input impedanceAntenna radiation efficiency 2221211() 22grrcdrLgrgLIRPowerRadiatedbyAntennaPePowerDeliveredtoAntennaPPIRIR [2-90]LrrcdRRRe Note: this works well for those antennas that are modeled as a series RLC circuit like wire antennas.
