Abstract


In this paper a microstrip patch antennais proposed for Ku-band satellite applications on the basis of its performance. The bandwidth of 6.12GHzhas been achieved with the help of parasitic patches, defected radiating patch and defected ground structure. The overall size proposed antenna is 16x8mm2.Four parasitic patches have been introduced and the antenna has obtained a return loss of 48.84dB at the center frequency of 16.77GHz. This antenna has been simulated using FR-4 substrate with dielectric constant of 4.3.Thisantenna can be used for satellite communications in Ku- Band.
