Multi-Band Microstrip Antenna Design for Wireless Energy Harvesting

Md Abdul Kader Shuvo, Md. Mahmudul Hasan


The purpose of this work is to propose an efficient microstrip rectenna operating on 900/1800 MHz GSM bands and the 2.4 GHz ISM band. The receiving antenna with presented joint feeding line implemented in a multilayer substrate. The reflection coefficient at the input of the optimized multi-Band microstrip patch antenna is below -10dB over the every frequency band. The measurement results are in excellent contract with the CST STUDIO SUITE 2011 simulation results.
