A new, simple approach for calculating bandwidth of electrically thin and thick rectangular microstrip patch antennas, based on multilayered perceptrons network, is presented. Four learning algorithms, backpropagation, delta-bar-delta, quick propagation, and extended-delta-bar-delta are used to train perceptrons. Theoretical bandwidth results obtained using the new approach are in agreement with experimental results available in the literature. (C) 1999 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
