Abstract:

Arrays of cylindrical dipoles and monopoles are usually driven by means of interconnecting transmission lines, whereas analyses of such arrays are generally made in terms of currents or voltages with assigned relative amplitudes and phases at the individual input terminals. Moreover, it is commonly assumed that the distributions of current along all elements are the same and without phase variation. In this report the properties of broadside and endfire arrays are treated with full consideration of interconnecting transmission lines and the effect of mutual coupling on the distributions of current. Driving-point admittances and field patterns of arrays of half-wave and full-wave elements are given. A novel broadside-endfire array is described. Author
