Limiting Characteristics for Receiving Small Size Frame Antenna Matching Using Converter Negative Impedance
The limiting characteristics of electrically small-sized loop antenna matching by means of non-Foster's negative induct-ance are studied. Various options for including negative inductance in frame antenna structure are considered. The analytical limit expression for the operating frequency band of the small-sized loop antenna with the inclusion of negative inductance in the gap of the conductor frame is obtained. It is shown that for practical implementation the most convenient is the scheme with the inclusion of negative inductance between the conducting plane and the free output of the frame. Such inclusion of negative inductance causes small loss in width of the working frequency band compared with the inclusion of this inductance in the gap of the frame conductive plane, but EMF induced in the frame is twice as large. An integral expression is obtained for the maximum band matching of the small-sized loop antenna with the inclusion of negative inductance in grounded output, the integral in which is calculated numerically for various small-sized loop antenna quality factor and ratios between resonant frequency of the frame and operating frequency range. The results ob-tained are similar to Fano-Yula restriction for passive matching chains.
