ABSTRACT

The circular sector patch antenna is studied in C-band (4 GHz - 8 GHz). In this paper, we present steps of designing the circular sector antenna then a comparison with a rectangular antenna in literature. High Frequency Structure Simulator (HFSS) software is used to compute the gain, axial ratio, radiation pattern, and return loss S11 of proposed antenna. Based on the designed patch antenna, many phased arrays will be simulated using HFSS. The impact of distance between element, number of element and phase will be checked. Obtained results are analyzed and compared with literature.
