Abstract. Analysis of whip antenna
characteristics is carried out according to the bend shape. Monopoles with a
bend and variable linear part were analyzed. Thus we have a two-stage modeling
and analysis. Electromagnetic simulations were conducted in CST Studio Suite.
For a number of antenna configurations differing by bending angle relative to
the main portion of the pin and the length of the core, we have obtained frequency
dependences of directional diagram, gain, input impedance. The correctness of
the modeling was verified by comparative analysis of the characteristics of the
probe without bending, obtained in CST Studio Suite, with the theoretical. It
is shown that the increase of the angle of the bend leads to the displacement
of the maximum input impedance to low frequencies. The possibility of reducing
the size and improving performance by changing the design of the antenna, namely,
the shortening of the linear part, is demonstrated. Such a construction with
reduced dimensions may be used as a car antenna for frequencies of 1 to 3 GHz.
Key words: whip antenna, whip
antenna is folded, the analysis of the characteristics of the antenna whip.
