4X1 linearly polarized rectangular patch array antenna for Wireless applications

pdf PDF


The optimum scenario of this paper is to design and analyze the results of 4X1 rectangular patch array antenna with a single feed at an operating frequency of 5.5 GHz on an FR4 substrate. The primary methodology used to design the proposed antenna was to simulate using HFSS software. The results of proposed antenna has been determined in terms of antenna parameters such as gain, return Loss, VSWR, impedance matching, bandwidth, directivity and radiation pattern. It was found that the simulated antenna yielded 403 MHz of band width with a tolerable amount of return loss.
