This example shows how to model an infinite ground plane and calculate fundamental antenna parameters for unbalanced antennas.
Create a patch microstrip antenna on a ground plane of infinite length.
p = patchMicrostrip('GroundPlaneLength', inf)
p = patchMicrostrip with properties: Length: 0.0750 Width: 0.0375 Height: 0.0060 Substrate: [1x1 dielectric] GroundPlaneLength: Inf GroundPlaneWidth: 0.0750 PatchCenterOffset: [0 0] FeedOffset: [-0.0187 0] Conductor: [1x1 metal] Tilt: 0 TiltAxis: [1 0 0] Load: [1x1 lumpedElement]
View the physical construction of the patch microstrip antenna using infinite ground plane.
Calculate the impedance of the antenna over a frequency range of 1.60 GHz to 1.70 GHz.
Plot the radiation pattern of the antenna at a frequency of 1.67 GHz.
Mesh and view the infinite ground plane patch microstrip antenna.
