Design and Simulation of Linear Array Antenna Using Koch Dipole Fractal Antenna Elements for Communication Systems Applications

Engineering and Technology Journal 01/2010; 28:1854-1861.


In this paper, the fractal concept has been used in the linear array antenna
design to obtain multiband operation. The fractal linear array antenna has been designed at a frequency of 750 MHz with equal spacing and uniform amplitude distribution of the elements array. 1st iteration quadratic Koch curve dipole fractal element is used in design of the array. The proposed antenna array design, analysis and characterization had been performed using the Method of Moment (MoM) technique. The radiation pattern, side lobe level (SLL), directivity (D), and input impedance of the proposed antenna are described and simulated using 4NEC2 software package and MATLAB programming language version 7.6.
