In this paper, the authors describe the design and analysis of a microstrip square patch antenna to be operated at 2.31GHz. The proposed antenna is designed using electromagnetism simulation software ADS-2008. Simulated result shows that 7.384dB gains can be achieved at frequency 2.31GHz. Also, the return loss is -17.068dB and VSWR is 1.328 at design frequency. The impedance bandwidth is found to be 41MHz. The current distribution, 3D radiation pattern, 2D cut out radiation pattern in phi-plane has also been estimated. The antenna can be successfully used to capture electromagnetic energy from the RF signals that have been radiated by communication and WI-FI system around 2.4GHz.
