ABSTRACT: In this paper, a modified bowtie microstrip patch antenna is designed and simulated by using software HFSS (High Frequency Structure Simulator) software. This modified antenna is first designed and simulated and then further analysed for various parameters like return loss, VSWR, Radiation pattern, gain etc. In this work, for simulation purpose we have used ArlonCuClad 217 (tm) as dielectric material. We have modified the basic bowtie antenna by doing some modification in its structure i. e. on its arms. In simulation result we have achieved return loss below -10 dB. This simulated antenna has broad application in the field of satellite communication. Proposed model has been validated for various results like VSWR, antenna gain and radiation pattern.
