driving-point impedance, induced impedance, resistance, reactance, rectangular screen, screen edge, diffracted field components


Technique for calculating the driving-point impedance of the arbitrary oriented finite length electric dipole placed near the rectangular metal screen is presented, together with numerical results for the case when the exciting element is a half-wavelength dipole. The full induced impedance includes the mutual impedance between the exciting dipole and its image and induced impedance on a dipole due to the diffracted fields from screen edges. The developed algorithm is based on the induced electromotive forces method with using the uniform geometric diffraction theory method.
