A Novel Shape Microstrip Patch Antenna for Bandwidth Optimization with Shorting Pin


Objectives: The aim is to design a Microstrip Patch Antenna (MSA) for enhancement of bandwidth and improved outcome for return loss. The approach for dimension decrease is also a parameter for designing of this antenna. Method: A shorted pin, coaxial feed, Microstrip Patch Antenna (MSA) is used for wireless communication. The patch with U type slot, cut at corner and also shorted by shorting pin is the design of an antenna. For good efficiency proposed antenna’s design parameters are optimized by HFSS’s Optometric. Findings: The proposed antenna has a wide band frequency ranged from 1.4 GHz to 4 GHz with Bandwidth of 210 MHz and 250 MHz return loss of-11.45db and -20.50dB respectively. In this design HFSS (High Frequency Structure Simulator) software is used which is a FEM based electromagnetic solver. The parameteric analysis of return loss, gain and bandwidth is done in an extended form in the proposed antenna design. Application: This design is suitable for the function in wireless communication system and also for fabrication proposes design is very simple.
