In this article, a set of closed-form expressions is proposed to predict the resonant frequency, quality factor, input impedance, bandwidth efficiency, directivity and gain for a coax-fed electromagnetically coupled rectangular patch antenna. The computed results obtained with the present model are compared with the experimental and HFSS simulated results. The present model shows less error against the experimental and simulated results.
