Abstract

A novel method for admittance calculation of two gap-coupled sectoral patch antennas is described for wide band applications.Admittance is calculated both numerically and experimentally. The results of antenna are computed by the developed model and compared with the experimentally measured results of the designed antenna. The numerical results obtained are in good agreement with the experimental results. © 2011 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
