A wideband C-shaped patch antenna for LibyaSat-1

Conference Paper


Abstract


  • This paper presents a wideband C-shaped patch antenna for LibyaSat-1. The two parallel slots of the upper C-shaped path are incorporated to generate a second resonant frequency and hence broaden bandwidth. The folded patch technique is used to reduce the coaxial probe length and inductance at the feed section. In addition, the Quasi Newton method is used to achieve an operating frequency of 2.215 GHz (S-band). Our simulation results show that the antenna achieves a -10-dB impedance bandwidth of 1550 MHz (2.00-3.55 GHz), and has a total gain of 6.45 dB at 2.215GHz.
