Parametric Modeling of small terminals and Multiband or Ultra wideband Antennas

Abstract : Since the inception of short range Ultra Wideband (UWB) communication systems the factors like device miniaturization and high speed data rate create big challenges for antenna designers. One way to make the design job easy is to statistically model the variabilities of antenna radiation behavior as a function of its geometry. Such an effort is also useful for the better usage of the communication channel by combining the antenna model with it. This thesis is an attempt towards statistical modeling of UWB antennas. The subject faces two main challenges, the creation of sizeable statistical population of the class of antenna design(s) and modeling of antenna's radiation pattern which is composed of huge number of complex parameters. In this thesis we try to answer the former by proposing a generic design approach for UWB planar antennas and the latter by presenting the use of ultra-compressed parametric modeling technique. The generic design approach is based on trapezoidal shapes and offers great flexibility and versatility in designing various UWB antennas. This approach shows a significant ease in antenna optimization (also for population creation) as it reduces the no. of parameters that controls the antenna geometry without compromising the degree of freedom. Ultra-compressed parametric modeling is based on two antenna synthesis methods, singularity expansion method (SEM) and Spherical mode expansion method (SMEM) that reduce the required no. of complex parameters for the radiation pattern by 99.9%, making the modeling effort possible. A statistical model of biconical antenna based on ultra-compressed modeling technique has been presented.
