ABOUT THIS BOOK SERIES
Antenna arrays are able to produce radiation patterns that combined, have characteristics that a single antenna would not.

An antenna array is a group of radiators whose currents are of different amplitudes and phases. They use electro-magnetic wave interference phenomena to enhance the radiation signal in the desired direction and diminish it in the non-desired direction. Antenna arrays are the solution to the problem defined as the limitations of operating a single antenna. An example of the problem is that although a dipole antenna allows for better control of direction than an isotropic (omni-directional) antenna — as the length of the dipole increases, the control of direction decreases. Hence control by changing the length of a single antenna is very limited. Greater flexibility and control can be obtained for directing the beam with an arrangement of multiple radiators.

There are two basic types of antenna arrays: Driven and Parasitic.
1. Driven Array
The driven array is also called the driven element. It is the element of the antenna which is directly connected with the source or the load. In the given diagram the folded dipole is the example of the driven array.

2. Parasitic Array
The parasitic arrays are also called the parasitic elements. These are the elements of the antenna which are not directly taking part in reception and transmission but these elements indirectly increase the strength of the signal for transmission or reception..
