This paper describes the several feeding techniques/methods used for the antenna. These methods can be classified into two categories- contacting and non-contacting. In the contacting method, the RF power is fed directly to the radiating patch using a connecting element such as a microstrip line. In the non-contacting scheme, electromagnetic field coupling is used to transfer power between the microstrip line and the radiating patch. The simulation of the antenna is performed using High-Frequency Structure Simulator (HFSS V13.0). Antennas are used for various biomedical diagnosis applications, mobile radio, remote sensing, satellite, and wireless communications. In this manuscript, a comparative study between microstrip feed, inset feed, co-axial feed, aperture couple feed, and proximity couple feed on the rectangular microstrip patch antenna has been shown S-parameter, VSWR, Gain and Radiation Pattern using HFSS software.
