Design, Simulation and Analysis of a Square Shaped S-band Microstrip Patch Antenna
In this paper, a square shaped microstrip patch antenna has been designed, simulated and analyzed in Zealand IE3D environment. The antenna is fabricated on a 60mil RO4003 substrate from Rogers-Corp with a dielectric constant of 3.4 and loss tangent of 0.002. The basic design procedure of the antenna is discussed stepwise with appropriate diagrams. Sequential snapshots of the values of various parameters involved in the process of simulation set up are also presented. The surface current distribution is analyzed with appropriate simulations along with the discussion on the S-parameters of the simulated structure.
