In this work a broadband UHF antenna with high inductive input impedance for radiofrequency energy harvesting is presented. It consists of a small feeding loop and a biconical radiating dipole. A prototype has been fabricated on a FR4 substrate and tested. Experimental results show a -3dB power transmission bandwidth of about 135MHz (840MHz-975MHz).
In this work the radiation of the electromagnetic field due to partial discharges throughout the insulation spacer of Gas Insulated Switchgears is investigated. Radiation can be described in terms of resonant modes of the slot between the metallic bolts and of the parallel plate between the metallic flanges. The geometrical characteristics of the spacer,… (More)
An accurate analysis of the single-mode properties of modified honeycomb photonic bandgap fibers with different geometric characteristics has been carried out by calculating the confinement losses of the fundamental and the higher-order modes. Simulation results have shown that confinement loss lower than 0.1 dB/km and an effectively single-mode behaviour… (More)
