5.8-GHz Antenna Array Design for Satellite Solar Power Station
In this work, a basic and low-cost microstrip antenna array with reduced size has been designed and tested. In the implementation level, a microstrip array antenna was realized to obtain the desired gain and directivity at a preferred frequency of 5.8 GHz. The compact antenna array consists of 2 × 2 elements microstrip patch antenna. Using simple and manual tuning method in electromagnetic full-wave momentum by Agilent Advanced Design Software, a direct control of the antenna’s resonant frequency was obtained.
