In this paper, we present design and simulation of a compact grid array microstrip patch antenna. In the design of antenna a RT/duroid 5880 substrate having relative permittivity, thickness and loss tangent of 2.2, 1.57 mm and 0.0009 respectively, has been used. The simulated antenna performance was obtained by Computer Simulation Technology Microwave Studio (CST MWS). The antenna performance was investigated by analyzing its return loss (S11), radiation pattern, voltage standing wave ratio (VSWR) parameters. The simulated S11 parameter has shown that antenna operates for Industrial, Scientific and Medical (ISM) band and Wireless Body Area Network (WBAN) applications at 2.45 GHZ ISM, 6.25 GHZ, 8.25 GHZ and 10.45 GHZ ultra-wideband (UWB) four resonance frequencies with bandwidth > 500MHz (S11 <; -10dB). The antenna directivity increased towards higher frequencies. The VSWR of resonance frequency bands is also achieved succesfully less than 2. It has been observed that the simulation result values of the antenna are suitable for WBAN applications.
