Non Ideal Cylindrical Monopole Antenna Array
Keywords:Antenna array, monopole antenna, non ideal current distribution
This paper presents a study of a Two Monopole Antenna Array. The design takes into account considerations of non sinusoidal current distribution of each monopole antenna approximated by the three term theory developed by King et al. in 1966 and effects of mutual coupling between the two radiating elements. A physical implementation was done to verify the simulated results with good accuracy.
