Abstract:
In this paper, the transverse equivalent network (TEN) model based on the transmission line theory is employed to analyze and calculate the far-field radiation properties of the Fabry-Perot Resonator (FPR) antenna with perfect magnetic conductor (PMC) ground plane in detail, then the comparative study of the radiation property of FPR antenna with PMC and PEC ground plane is presented. The closed-form expressions for the radiated fields, field peak values, pattern beamwidths and pattern bandwidth of this type of antenna in the E- and H-planes are derived, respectively. The results demonstrate that in theory the radiation property of FPR antenna with two kinds of ground plane is not the same unexpectedly. An interesting characteristic of this type of antenna is that when the PMC acts as the antenna ground plane, the beamwidth and bandwidth of the antenna is increased by a factor of two in general cases, while its peak value of far field is the same as that of the conventional antennas of this class having PEC ground plane. Some results are validated through full-wave simulations of an actual antenna. The original results obtained here lead to a design method for getting the maximum directivity and keeping the bandwidth of this kind of resonant antenna, which is of great significance for antenna designing.
