Novel empirical equations to calculate the impedance of a strip dipole antenna

By S Shady Keyrouz, HJ Huib Visser and AG Anton Tijhuis

Abstract

\u3cp\u3eThis paper investigates the input impedance of strip dipoles since they are the basic elements of folded strip dipole antennas. A novel, simple and accurate design algorithm is presented. Compared to state-of-the art design equations, the new proposed equations are more accurate than those found in the literature and take into consideration the antenna feeding width. These equations reduce the calculation time, when compared to commercial electromagnetic simulation (EM) software, allowing for fast antenna designs with very high accuracy. So one can usually obtain results relatively quickly when compared to EM simulation software. Based on the novel equations, a strip dipole antenna is designed, simulated, manufactured and measured. The simulation results are validated by measurements.\u3c/p\u3
