This paper presents the simulation analysis of three dimensional circular embedded patch antenna mounted on coaxial cable for wideband applications. The proposed antenna design is constructed from taking a basic square substrate with ground at lower side which is fed by a cylindrical strip coaxial cable feed line satisfying the 50 Ω requirement. Two vertically symmetrical cylinder of equal diameter with perpendicular to each other are mounted on feed line; which acts as a radiator. High Frequency Structure Simulator (HFSS) is used to analyze the critical parameters and simulation results on the reflection coefficient/return loss, VSWR (voltage standing wave ratio), H-plane, E-plane, gain and radiation pattern of the proposed antenna at various frequencies. The antenna has ability to achieve the frequency range of 3.3–30 GHz along with 160%, 9.09:1 fractional bandwidth and bandwidth ratio (BWR), respectively.
