Analysis Of Linearly And Circularly Polarized Microstrip Patch Antenna Array
Abstract- Characteristics of patch antennas like beam scanning, high gain, or steering capability are possible only when discrete patch elements are combined to form arrays. The elements of an array may be spatially distributed to form a linear, planar, or volume array. Conventional antennas and microstrip antennas are crucial for application in modern communication and navigation systems. Microstrip antennas can conform to planar and non-planar surfaces. Hence they find wide usage in military and civilian applications like aerospace structures where weight and space are a restriction. The design of a four-element circularly polarized and linearly polarized microstrip antenna array, which is based on Uniform and Binomial power distribution, using FEKO is presented in this paper.
