Novel Design of Highly Directive Mictrostrip Patch Antenna with Air Substrate

  • Skanda H


This paper presents a novel design and analysis of inset fed microstrip patch antenna with an air substrate operating at 2.4 Ghz. The proposed antenna has a high directivity and high radiation efficiency which are 2 important parameters in antennas for communications, radars, wireless power transmission and other applications. The S parameters, VSWR, Directivity, gain, beamwidth, radiation efficiency, electric field intensity and size of the design are presented. Ansys HFSS was used for the study. Small amounts of FR4 material was also used.

Keywords: Microstrip Patch antennas, Wireless communication, Radars, Air substrates.
