Wave Iterative Method for Patch Antenna Analysis


Wave Iterative Method (WIM) is a numerical modeling for electromagnetic field analysis of microwave circuits. Theories of transmission line, four terminal network and boundary condition are applied to developing WIM simulation that the physical electromagnetic wave is described to a mathematical model using GUI function of MATLAB. In applying, the microstrip patch antenna was analyzed and implemented. The research result shows that the WIM simulation can be used correctly to analyze the electric field, magnetic field theory and return lose of sample patch antenna. The comparison of the WIM calculation agrees well with the measurement and the classical simulation.
