Abstract

A new, very simple expression for the effective patch radius is presented for the resonant frequency of electrically thick circular microstrip patch antennae. It is obtained by using a modified tabu search algorithm, and is useful for the computer-aided design (CAD) of microstrip antennae. The theoretical resonant frequency results obtained by using this new effective patch radius expression are in very good agreement with the experimental results available in the literature.
