Investigation of PCB microstrip patch receiving antenna for outdoor RF energy harvesting in wireless sensor networks

Abstract

In this paper the suitability of using a printed circuit board (PCB) microstrip patch receiving antenna for a novel application — RF energy harvesting to power a wireless soil sensor network deployed in an outdoor environment — is investigated. The performance of a conventional circular microstrip patch antenna using different microwave laminate substrates… (More)
