MATLAB-CST Interfacing for a Micro-strip Patch Antenna


Objectives: To present an overview on interfacing of MATLAB and commercial electromagnetic software packages (such as CST microwave studio). Methods/Statistical Analysis: This type of interfacing requires a scripting language interface termed as VBA script. An example for the design of an inset microstrip patch antenna is demonstrated in this paper using VBA. The controlling of CST microwave studio is done using MATLAB which calls microstrip patch antenna design along with its performance parameters such as S11 parameter, VSWR, power requirement, radiation pattern, return losses etc. Findings: The interface created between CST and MATLAB worked well and antenna parameters can be called in MATLAB to operate on them. Improvements: Further optimization algorithm can be performed on this in order to get optimized real time performance of antenna.
