This paper presents the design and simulation of parasitic Microstrip patch antenna with enhanced bandwidth. The Microstrip patch antenna becomes very popular day by day because of its ease of analysis low cost, light weight, easy to feed and their attractive characteristics. The bandwidth obtained by the proposed antenna structure is about 58.10%. The antenna is thin and compact which makes it easily portable. A maximum gain of 4dB achieved at 2.88GHz frequency. The VSWR parameter was found to be less than 2 within the operating frequency range. The substrate material with relative permittivity of 4.2 and loss tangent of 0.0013 is used in this proposed antenna. The total simulation is done on IE3D software.
