The analysis process is done in three steps. First, we characterized the patch in term of an equivalent circuit model. Then we investigated the mutual coupling of an array of patches. Finally we developed a suitable EBG ring in order to increase the efficiency of the antenna. The last operation is important for the optimization and design process.
