Types of Antenna Arrays

Previously we have discussed antenna array under various sections including its need, working, advantages, limitations along with applications. We know that an antenna array is a single system formed by arranging various antennas in an appropriate manner. Basically, proper spacing and proper phase must be provided to the antennas when configured as an array. Whenever …
