Rr may be thought of as virtual resistance that does not exist physically but is a quantity coupling the antenna to distant regions of space via a virtual transmission .line Reciprocity-An antenna exhibits identical impedance during Transmission or Reception, same directional patterns during Transmission or Reception, same effective height while transmitting or receiving . Transmission and reception antennas can be used interchangeably. Medium must be linear, passive and isotropic(physical properties are the same in different directions.) Antennas are usually optimised for reception or transmission, not both. Patterns The radiation pattern or antenna pattern is the graphical representation of the radiation properties of the antenna as a function of space. That is, the antenna's pattern describes how the antenna radiates energy out into space (or how it receives energy. It is important jntuworldupdates.org Specworld.in

Smartzworld.com Smartworld.asia to state that an antenna can radiate energy in all directions, so the antenna pattern is actually three-dimensional. It is common, however, to describe this 3D pattern with two planar patterns, called the principal plane patterns. These principal plane patterns can be obtained by making two slices through the 3D pattern ,through the maximum value of the pattern . It is these principal plane patterns that are commonly referred to as the antenna patterns Radiation pattern or Antenna pattern is defined as the spatial distribution of a ‗quantity‘ that characterizes the EM field generated by an antenna. The ‗quantity‘ may be Power, Radiation Intensity, Field amplitude, Relative Phase etc. Normalized patterns It is customary to divide the field or power component by it‘s maximum value and plot the normalized function.Normalized quantities are dimensionless and are quantities with maximum value of unity Half power level occurs at those angles (θ,Φ)for which Eθ(θ,Φ)n =0.707 At distance d>>λ and d>> size of the antenna, the shape of the field pattern is independent of the distance Pattern in spherical co-ordinate system Beamwidth is associated with the lobes in the antenna pattern. It is defined as the angular separation between two identical points on the opposite sides of the main lobe. The most common type of beamwidth is the half-power (3 dB) beamwidth (HPBW). To find HPBW, in the equation, defining the radiation pattern, we set power equal to 0.5 and solve it for angles. Another frequently used measure of beamwidth is the first-null beamwidth (FNBW), which is the angular separation between the first nulls on either sides of the main lobe. jntuworldupdates.org Specworld.in
