This paper investigates the working mechanism of dual-polarized tightly-coupled cross-dipoles that are widely used in cellular base station applications. The effects of couplings between sub-dipoles on the performance indexes of concern are observed. A theory of considering this type of cross-dipole as an array is proposed and validated. The proposed theory explains why a stable radiation pattern can be achieved by this kind of structure. The array model can be used to guide the introduction and optimization of a simplified cross-dipole structure for base station application.
