Abstract: In the present paper analyses the radiation Pattern, the factor of array of antennas that are in linear or planar array, we will observe the effect that has the increment or decrease of the number of elements in the array.

Linear Arrays Uniform

In

order

to

analyse

the linear arrays,

the same way that it was realized with the dipoles, is convenient to set the elements through the axis z. In this way the factor

of array has rotational symmetry and only depends on the angle θ.

The systems of modern mobile com- munications request main capacity from services owed to the constant increment of the number of users. Like an alternative in the solution of this problem, technology opens with the antenna an interrelated alternative; Giving rise to the use of arrays of antennas. Knowing the parameters that characterize the radiation pattern of a dipole and applying it in the array.

Planar arrays are more versatile and can provide more symmetrical patterns with lower side lobes. In addition, they can be used to scan the main beam of the antenna toward any point in space. Applications include tracking radar, search radar, remote sensing, communications, and many

others.(3)

Another option of spatial dis-

tribution is that

of the circular

type which antennas are located in to a distance separate 2 of the center; It is of clarifying that

in this type of array the very

beginning of multiplication

of

parameters also is used. This type of array presents in simula- tions a better performance when compare it the arrangements was mentioned in the previous paragraphs, since he does not show back symmetric lobes, the as they are not desirable for a satellite communication, however the displacement angle of main lobe is reduced.

CONCLUSIONS

  • The arrays planar provi- de directional beams, ra- diation patterns with low

side lobes, and a directi- vity a lot greater than the elements of a linear asso- ciation.

  • Between head be

number of elements of an

association more executi- is the radiation Pat-

ve tern, its main lobe redu- ces its width and it gets longer.

  • When the radiation pat- terns of every element of the array are all the sa- me and the elements are orientated in the same di- rection, the radiation pat- tern is the sum of every diagram of the elements of array.
