Abstract

In the recent years the development in communication systems requires the development of low cost, minimal weight and low profile antenna that is capable of maintaining high performance over a wide spectrum of frequencies. This technological trend has focused much effort into the design of a microstrip patch antenna. The aim of this paper is to design and simulate a triangular microstrip patch array antenna using HFSS software and compare the performance of 2 elements, 4 elements and 8 elements patch arrays with that of a single patch for the same operating frequency. Also comparisons are made between the performance of series, corporate and series-corporate feed network. These arrays are designed to operate at a frequency of 11 GHz. Our goal is to obtain a high directivity with better gain and reduced losses, to be especially used for X band applications such as satellite communication, radar, medical applications, and other wireless systems.
