Abstract: This paper presents the design and simulation of microstrip circular antenna arrays and studies the effect of excitation with uniform and Dolph--Chebyshev distribution. With side lobe level of 20 dB and 8 microstrip circular patches, the circular array has been demonstrated with minimum grating lobes. The effects of patch and antenna array length on directivity, radiation patterns, and side lobe are also studied in detail. It is found that these antenna arrays are suitable for radar application.
