Is there any specific formulas to calculate the height of the substrate, width of transmission line, gap between transmission line and the patch??

I am trying to simulate a microstrip antenna in CST suite. And from what i have seen there are only ballpark estimates like height should be way less than wavelength and such.

Is CST the best software for doing this simulation? If no, please recommend other software.

Thank you in advance.

Maybe have a Google for:

"microwave patch antenna design software"

and:

"antenna design software"

and a read through:

http://www.researchgate.net/po...design_and_simulation

I seem to recall seeing some patch antenna design s/w in somewhere like:

http://www.rfcafe.com/

Google might just be your best friend on this one ...

I am Diponkar Kundu doing Masters of Engineering Science in University of Malaya. i will have to design micro-strip patch antenna for energy harvesting. how i can design this. what are the primary works to design an antenna. How i can design a novel antenna ? how i can calculate parameters of antenna. please help me by suggestion. i also use CST software. I have already learned how i can design antenna by CST. please help me.
