Abstract

In this paper, design and analysis of a novel broadband V-shaped monopole antenna is presented. The proposed antenna has a simple configuration to fabricate with low cost. The antenna is composed of two elliptical conducting plates connected to the two edges of a small horizontal rectangular plate and placed over a small circular ground plane. The designed antenna has a very wide bandwidth range of 3-18 GHz, low cross polarization, relatively high gain and good far-field radiation characteristics in the entire operating bandwidth. To obtain the broad bandwidth, the antenna dimensions have been optimized. A comprehensive parametric study has been carried out to understand the effects of various parameters and to optimize the performance of the final design. The designed antenna is simulated with software packages CST microwave studio and Ansoft' HFSS in the operating frequency range. Simulation results for VSWR and far-field radiation patterns of the antenna over the frequency band 3-18 GHz are presented and discussed.
