On Radiation Efficiency and Radiating Capability of Impulse Antennas
Electromagnetic radiation efficiency and radiating capability of impulse antenna are discussed at this paper. A term of impulse antenna is referred to an electromagnetic pulse radiation system with short pulse response. Relation between such antenna characteristics as storage factor, efficiency and radiating capability is considered here. Improvement methods of impulse antemia efficiency and radiating capability are discussed also.
Possibilities of impulse antenna efficiency improvement with high radiating efficiency preservation are discussed. It is shown that efficiency of impulse and resonant antennas may be commensurable if energy recuperation back into power supply is provided. Some methods to increase impulse antenna efficiency and radiating capability are described and discussed.
Keywords: Radiation efficiency, radiating capability, transient radiation, impulse antemia.
