## radiation pattern matlab

Hi all:

I want to know how to plot radiation pattern**in dB (Logarithmic)**in MATLAB?

Thanks.

## radiation pattern in matlab

Hi Kohi_boy:

The version is 2006Ra.

My inputs are angles(rad) and for example Gain in dB or Mag. I export them from HFSS.

## 3d polar plot matlab

Hello masud_809,

Plotting radiation patterns in matlab is simple but little tricky. I use normalised radiation patterns i.e. max gain is '0' and then it decreases so the scale look likes 0,-5,-10 ...-40(dB) . Other important thing to keep in mind is the POLAR function in matlab do not plot the negative gains and returns you with an error so you have to keep everything positive or zero values.

So to plot the normalised radiation patterns :

1. open your data in excel sheet.

2. look for the max. gain value for particular angle, say for example its 6 dB. Now to make a plot with scale 0 to -40 dB which is most common, add 40-6 i.e 34 to all the gain. This make the highest gain of your result which is 6 dB in our example to 40 dB and other decreases accordingly.

3. Now look for any negative values in gain column and replace it to 'Zero'. Once done now you can plot this normalised radiation pattern data using POLAR command and since you already have angles in radians so just directly use that.

Once you plot the pattern just change the scale in matlab plot as 0 to -40.

Hope this solve your query.

Thanks & Regards

Praful

## matlab plot

by far the easiest way is to download the m-file 'mmpolar'.

It automatically generates polar radiation plots that are of the style we are all used to seeing.

## mmpolar download

I've tried mmpolar function, seems it doesn't support the hold on command so multiple plots in same figure is not possible.

## how to plot radiation pattern

hi everybody,

can anybody expalin how to make 3D polar radiation pattern in matlab?

I am using UV plot where with mesh(x,y,z) command

x=sin(theta)cos(phi)

y=sin(theta)sin(phi)

ans

z=calculated gain

all are NxN square matrix

But I want to plot in polar form

Thanks

## matlab polar db

Hi mns,

I've never tried 3D polar plots in matlab but seems an interesting exercise. I'll try and let you know.

## how to plot in matlab

Dear all,

I think you can use sisotool function to draw it.

With my best wishes.

For this post, as you can see, I used MATLAB to re-plot a radiation pattern which I generated with HFSS.

So my angle data were ready and I just needed a function to SHOW that data in 2d/3d.

You can find the radiation pattern for these apertures in any antenna text books. My suggestion is Balanis.
