NUMERIC CALCULATION OF INPUT IMPEDANCE FOR A GIANT VLF T-TYPE ANTENNA ARRAY

Abstract:
The input reactance and radiation resistance of a giant very low frequency (VLF) ‘T type' antenna with ground screen is computed by Method of Moment (MoM). The loss resistance of a complex grounding system is calculated by numeric integral of near field from MoM solution of the antenna on the ground surface. The numeric calculation results agree well with the measured data.
