Abstract

The purpose of this project is to design an education program for radiation and propagation of rectangular patch antenna. There are many available commercial softwares to design patch antenna but besides costly and time consuming, equations involved are not clearly stated although method used is known. This developed education software is cheap, simple to use and time-savvy. This education program is generated by using MATLAB coding to deal with real situations while the graphical user interface (GUI) is designed by using Hewlett-Packard Visual Engineering Environment (HP VEE). Available electromagnetic analytical equations will be used to predict the performance of rectangular patch antenna where the results will be compared with literature data and commercial simulator results, which are expected agree with available published data. The results obtained has almost the same shape and polarization properties compares to the one simulated by using AWR Design Environment 2006. An educational software tool for microwave study is created upon the completion of this project. The existence of this software tool will ease the difficulties of designing rectangular patch antenna as it is economical, user friendly and time-saving.
