Self and mutual inductances of uniplanar folded dipoles

Contact: Macháč Jan – machac(z)

The aim of the project is to calculate the self and mutual inductances of pairs of uniplanar folded dipoles printed on a dielectric substrate, see Fig.

In the first case use constant current passing along arms of the dipoles defined by the average value. Next use the distribution of the current described by sinus function – minimum (zero) at arm open ends and maximum at the central (vertical) part. Compare the results. Consider the mutual inductance only between two neighboring dipoles. Perform the parametric analysis depending on the dipole geometry, namely depending the distance between elements. For the calculation use the Neumann’s formula defining the mutual inductance based on the vector potential of the stationary magnetic field.
