Although providing similar functions to phased arrays, the non-linear and non-convex nature of the objective function The parasitic antenna arrays are also used to achieve high beam forming gain by controlling the mutual coupling between the elements [].

An interesting work on the design of dual band, high Particularly, the realized gain of the E-fiber array was dBi, 1 dB lower than that of the copper array. We note that the increased spacing between the patch elements during bending led to the difference between the radiation patterns of the flat and curved ://   The overall length was 34 cm.

and the peak gain was dB with respect to an isotropic radiator. The estimated radiation efficiency was 83 percent. PLANAR MICROSTRIP ARRAYS. Planar microstrip arrays are used to form a pencil beam and array elements can be fed in a variety of :// Antenna Arrays (Phased Arrays) An antenna array (often called a ' phased array ') is a set of 2 or more antennas.

The signals from the antennas are combined or processed in order to achieve improved performance over that of a single The mutual coupling between antenna elements affects the antenna parameters like terminal impedances, reflection coefficients and hence the antenna array performance in terms of radiation characteristics, output signal-to-interference noise ratio (SINR), and radar cross section (RCS).

This coupling effect is also known to directly or indirectly influence the steady state and transient response Similar to conventional adaptive arrays, ES-PAR Antenna is an adaptive solution that can create and steer both radiation lobes and nulls in arbitrary directions [1].

The radiation pattern is controlled by varying the DC voltage across varactors loading the parasitic elements that surround a feed element. Due to it's low cost, compact size, uncomplicated structure and low power requirements The application of recently developed algorithms to antenna systems design is demonstrated by the worst-case tolerance optimization of linear broadside arrays, using both spacings and excitation In this paper a new approach has been presented to improve the beamforming and null-steering capabilities of small, wireless terminal antennas.

Due to the reduced number of antennas and the crucial environmental influences (antenna separation, battery, small groundplane), the beamforming performance is limited.

Especially in the case of null-steering the achivable attenuation of the nulls is This article considers the exploitation of parasitic antenna arrays in multi-user (MU) wireless communication systems by using their adaptive beamforming capabilities in order to improve the average system throughput.

The use of parasitic arrays and especially the electrically steerable passive array radiator (ESPAR) antennas enables the design of terminals with a single RF front-end and   There are two types of arrays antenna.

Driven Array. The driven array is also called the driven element. It is the element of the antenna which is directly connected with the source or the load. In the given diagram the folded dipole is the example of the driven array.

In order to describe the algorithm for the design of conformal microstrip antennas, for the sake of simplicity, let us first consider a probe-fed planar microstrip antenna with a gular patch of length Lpa and width Wpa, mounted on a dielectric substrate of thickness hs, relative permittivity εr, and loss tangent tan δ, such as the one shown in Figure 1(a).

Reconfiguration can alleviate this problem by providing control of the element phase centers. Scan coverage can be improved and scan blindness alleviated by controlling the embedded antenna patterns of the elements as well as by providing control of the   arrays, ESPARs only require a few active antenna elements with RF chains, while other antenna elements are parasitic and excited passively by the mutual coupling effect.

With a tunable load employed at each parasitic element, the mutual coupling and consequently the currents at each antenna port can be controlled to form the desired radiation Note that while these examples are based on small linear arrays to help illustrate the ideas, the same type of workflows can be applied to larger, more complex array structures.
