Abstract

A C-band satellite receiving antenna requires high gain and narrow beamwidth at around 4 GHz frequency. Microstrip antennas, which have a low profile characteristic, have remained promising for various wireless applications. This paper proposes a rectangular patch antenna design that arranged by planar arrays and Chebyshev feeding technique to achieve high gain and low sidelobe levels for C-band applications. The antenna design is simulated and parameterized by using CST Microwave Studio. The results show an increase of gain and decrease in the side lobe level obtained from the model using the Chebyshev technique compared to the uniform power divider technique. With the proposed feeding of the 4x4 array antenna, it achieves gain and sidelobe level of 16 dB and-28.5 dB, respectively. The 8x8 array antenna with the Chebyshev technique reaches gain performance, and sidelobe level of 20.2 dB and-24.3 dB, respectively. Meanwhile, the 16x16 microstrip array antenna can achieve gain and sidelobe level of 24 dB and-23.8 dB. These results indicate that the proposed array design can contribute to design an antenna suitable for C-band applications.
