Abstract

This article presents a practical approach towards the use of reflectors for Wi-Fi antennas. First, a custom Wi-Fi antenna was simulated in CST Studio software. Using simulation, we have analysed the effects of several types of reflectors on the antenna parameters. The most effective solution (antenna plus corner reflector) was manufactured and mounted on the specially designed ensemble. The designed ensemble enables automatic rotation of the reflector around the antenna. Simulation results were finally confronted with experimental measurements to validate the data. Our findings show that the presence of the reflector significantly increases the gain in the main radiation lobe and several other radiating directions.
