EEL 5462 – Antenna Theory – Fall 2013, GM Due: Dec 3 rd 2013, 9.30am Performance Study with Different Permittivity Values: Change the substrate thickness to 1mm. Keep the antenna size (i.e. Wp and Lp) and permittivity of the substrate identical to the previous case. Since substrate height has changed, you now need to determine a new width for the microstrip feed line to have 50Ω characteristic impedance (you can again use LineCalc for this). In addition, new values for Wf, Li must be chosen via trial and error to get good impedance match between the antenna and the feed line. Having completed the design, report the following: 1. Resonant frequency (simulate from 1GHz to 3GHz as was done previously). If you see multiple resonances, we are interested in the first one (lowest order mode). 2. -10 dB return loss bandwidth 3. Peak gain and 3D radiation pattern. Now repeat the above steps for the following permittivity values of 6 and 10. Report the following plots: 4. x-axis is for the dielectric constant and y-axis is for the peak gain. 5. x-axis is substrate dielectric constant and y-axis is -10 dB return loss bandwidth 6. x-axis is substrate dielectric constant and y-axis is resonant frequency Discuss the effects of the substrate permittivity on the antenna performance by interpreting the above results. Also, relate the above results to what is being expected from theory (Balanis, see discussions in the microstrip antennas chapter). 2 | P a g e
EEL 5462 – Antenna Theory (for Professionals) 1 Tutorial for Modeling Printed Antennas in ADS Momentum: Strip Dipole Antenna Example This tutorial demonstrates how to model a printed antenna in Agilent Advanced Design System (ADS) 2012 by going through an example strip dipole antenna example. The Momentum suite of ADS will be used to generate a full-wave electromagnetic model of the antenna. Momentum suite is based on method of moment (MoM) solution of electric/magnetic field integral equations. The antenna is modeled layer-by-layer over stacked planar dielectric/magnetic substrate materials. The number of material layers, type of layer metallization, and material properties (permittivity and permeability) can be defined by the users. Momentum assumes that the substrate materials are infinitely large in the plane and exhibit a finite thickness. Therefore, it cannot model finite size substrate and ground plane effects. Due to this infinitely planar substrate and ground plane assumption, these type of commercial software suites are sometimes referred to as 2.5D solvers. The following presents the design steps of modeling a strip dipole antenna in ADS 2012 Momentum Suite. 1) Start the ADS 2012 software. 2) Create a new workspace and choose the directory where you want to save it. 3) Click “Next” three times. Select the units you would like to use (Standard ADS layers, 0.0001 millimeter layout resolution). Click “Next” one more time, and then finish. 4) Go to options, technology, and technology setup.

Save it. 7) Open a Schematic Window as shown in below snapshot.
