Rectangular notch loaded dual band annular ring patch antenna

In this article, a dual band annular ring patch antenna is theoretically investigated using the equivalent circuit concept.Two symmetrical rectangular notches are etched in radiating ring patch with respect to feed point. It is observed that the resonant frequency is directly proportional to the notch width and notch length. The bandwidth of the antenna at lower and higher ends are 134 MHz(1.815-1.681GHz) and 212MHz (2.849-2.637GHz) respectively for given antenna specifications. The calculated results are compared with the IE3D simulation software and previously reported results based on Artificial Neural Network (ANN). The theoretical results obtained from the proposed analysis are in good agreement with the simulated and ANN based results.
