axialRatio

Axial ratio of antenna

Syntax

axialRatio(antenna,frequency,azimuth,elevation)
ar= axialRatio(antenna,frequency,azimuth,elevation)

Description

example

axialRatio(antenna,frequency,azimuth,elevation) plots axial ratio of an antenna over a specified frequency, and in the direction specified by azimuth and elevation.Any one among frequency, azimuth, or elevation values must be scalar. If only one of the values are scalar, the plot is 3-D. If two values are scalar, the plot is 2-D.

example

ar= axialRatio(antenna,frequency,azimuth,elevation) returns the axial ratio of an antenna, over the specified frequency, and in the direction specified by, azimuth and elevation.

Examples

collapse all

Calculate the axial ratio of an equiangular spiral antenna at azimuth=0 and elevation=0.

s  = spiralEquiangular;
ar = axialRatio(s,3e9,0,0)
ar = Inf

Create a cloverleaf antenna.

cl = cloverleaf;
show(cl);

Plot the axial ratio of the antenna from 5 GHz to 6 GHz.

freq = linspace(5e9,6e9,101);
axialRatio(cl,freq,0,0);

You can see from the axial ratio plot that the antenna supports circular polarization over the entire frequency range.

Input Arguments

collapse all

Antenna object, specified as an object.

Frequency used to calculate axial ratio, specified as a scalar or vector with each element in Hz.

Example: 70e6

Data Types: double

Azimuth angle of antenna, specified as a scalar or vector with each element in degrees.

Elevation angle of antenna, specified as a scalar or vector with each element in degrees.

Output Arguments

collapse all

Axial ratio of antenna, returned as a scalar in dB.
