Microstrip patch antenna has gain attention for wireless communication applications due to its low profile, low weight, low cost and small size. Particle swarm optimization is a popular optimization algorithm used for design of microstrip patch antenna. This paper presents design of probe fed rectangular microstrip patch antenna for frequency ranges from 3-8GHz using particle swarm optimization. A substrate with dielectric constant of 2.4 and height 1.578mm has been used for the design of microstrip patch antenna.
