Design and Simlation of a Dual-Band Microstrip Patch Antenna for microwave RFID Applications

2016 International Journal of Modern Trends in Engineering & Research  
This paper presents the design and simulation of a microstrip patch antenna (MPA) which is modeled by placing several rectangular copper layer with conductive characteristics on a substrate material with dielectric constant 3.0 and 22x18x1 mm 3 geometry. This microstrip path was designed with copper material which had a very thin thickness for patch and ground. In this study, a change in resonance frequency and return loss characteristics were observed for several substrate thickness values.

The microstrip patch antenna (MPA) radiate at a frequency of 15.32 GHz with -45 dB return loss. For the designed single and dual band MPA design, some electromagnetic properties such as return loss, surface current and radiation patterns were simulated. The characteristic of goods and chattels of the proposed antenna are analyzed by using the software CST Microwave Studio.
