Link Power Budgetting

9.Calculation of receiver G/T

1.Antenna elevation angle (deg)   Antenna elevation effects the antenna noise temperature. Antenna noise temperature decreases with increase of elevation.

2.Antenna noise temp   Antenna noise temperature is the sum of all noise sources at the antenna. 

3.Increase in Antenna noise due to rain  Rain effects the antenna noise temperature. It increases the antenna noise temperature.

4.LNA noise temp  LNA means Low Noise Amplifier. LNA noise temperature means noise temperature of LNA.

5.System noise temp (k)   It is the sum of all noise temperatures at the receiving antenna

System noise temperature (k) = antenna noise temperature + increase in antenna noise due to rain + LNA noise temperature (k).[13]

Example: Calculate system noise temperature of a satellite having noise temperature 25 K increase in antenna noise due to rain =0 K LNA noise temperature = 50 K
Solution
System noise temperature = antenna noise temperature + increase in antenna noise due to rain + LNA noise temperature
                                          = 25 + 0 + 50 = 75

6.Receiver G/T (dB/k)   Receiver G/T is the Figure of merit at the receiver antenna.

        Receiver G/T (dB/K) = Receiver Antenna gain 10 log(system noise temperature)   (dB/k) .[14]

Example: Calculate Receiver G/T (dB/K) of a satellite having antenna gain 41.33 , over all receiver noise temperature = 75 K
Receiver G/T (dB/K) = Receiver Antenna gain 10 log(system noise temperature)
                                   = 41.33- 10 log(75)
                                   =22.579 (dB/K)
