Abstract
A simple design formulation to compute accurate resonant frequencies of circular microstrip antennas covered with dielectric superstrates is proposed in this paper. It alleviates the rigorous mathematical analyzes and large computational time of some earlier works. This theory is widely applicable to both high and low dielectric constant superstrates as verified with the experiments and other theoretical models. Of all theories, the present one shows the closest approximation with the measurements revealing average percent error as low as 0.52%. The extension of this formulation to predict the accurate design data for conventional microstrip circular antennas are also verified with different experiments and available improved theories for various sets of antenna parameters.
