Special Antennas Chapter 7. In Sachidamanda 2, students are introduced to the terminology used for describ- ing the radiation and input characteristics of antennas. Apart from the ground and sky wave propagation characteristics, the book also discusses propagation models for urban and rural environments, which are used in the design of prlpagation phone networks.
The book contains a separate chapter on antenna measurements, which introduces the practical aspects of antenna characterization. The book provides a lucid overview of electromagnetic theory and a com- prehensive introduction to various types of antennas and their radiation characteristics.
The radiation pattern properties and some simple design procedures are explained.
Use of polynomial represen- tation of the array factor of a uniformly-spaced linear array and its pole-zero Preface vii representation on a circle diagram is explained. The calcu- lation of free space communication link budget is illustrated with examples. Each chapter is divided into sections that are independent. The chapter ends with a dis- cussion on the design of binomial and Chebyshev patterns. Antenna Measurements Chapter 8. A large number of exercise problems with varying difficulty levels are included to reinforce theoretical concepts.
A class of antennas which can be looked at as radiation from an aperture is treated in Chapter 4. Description Antennas and Wave Propagation is designed to serve as a textbook for undergraduate students of electrical, electronics, and communications engineering. Table of contents Chapter 1. Antennas and Wave Propagation. Some of the antennas discussed are monopole, V antenna, Yagi—Uda array, turnstile antenna, helix, spiral, microstrip patch, etc.
Antennas and Wave Propagation by Harish, A R ; Sachidananda, M
Content and Structure This book contains eight chapters which provide a comprehensive treatment of antennas and wave propagation. A minimal use of mathematical physics and emphasis on conceptual understanding make it an ideal text for undergraduate students. Currently this book is not available in Flipkart.
Antenna Characteristics Chapter 3. We sell our titles through other companies Amazon Go to Amazon website.
Antennas and Wave Propagation
Features Explains concepts clearly with the help of detailed derivations, illustrations, and worked examples Includes simple design procedures for popular antennas Includes detailed explanations on special antenna types Includes propagation issues related to modern communication systems. Wire Antennas Chapter 4. It hadish exhaustive coverage of basic antennas, such as dipoles, loops, and slots, which provides a clear comprehension of the principles of radiation and techniques of analysis.
Schematic block diagrams of the measurement instrumentation are presented. Indoor and outdoor measurement ranges which provide free-space-like conditions for the antenna are explained. Written ahd an easy-to-understand manner, the book includes several illustrative examples. Teaching the antenna theory course has given us an opportunity to interact with many students.
Detailed procedures for the computation of the performance parameters of these antennas are also given. The analysis of antennas is almost invariably concomitant with the study of the basic concepts of the propagation of electromagnetic waves through various propagation media and the discontinuities encoun- tered in the path of propagation.
It starts with the pattern multiplication principle and goes on xnd explain various pattern prop- erties using a two-element array as an example. Flipkart Go to Flipkart website. We would like to thank him for his kind gesture.

The terms used for characterizing an antenna as a receiver are also clearly explained. Online and Digital Products. Keeping this fact in mind, this book emphasizes the conceptual understanding of the principles of radiation and wave prop- agation by keeping the mathematical analysis to a minimum.
We appreciate the advice and support from friends and colleagues, which helped us in the preparation of the manuscript.
In this chapter, we study the interaction of the media and the discontinuities with electromagnetic waves. The book introduces the reader to the fundamentals of antennas and wave propagation with a lucid explanation of the basic concepts and theorems.
