Abstract

The research discusses the vital role of antennas in communication and telecommunications systems, with a focus on the design of a conical horn antenna for far-field measurements in the Ku-Band frequency range. Simulations using CST Studio 2019 were conducted to obtain the best design that meets the required standards for return loss and gain within the 10.7-14.5 GHz frequency range. The optimized design exhibits linear polarization, directional radiation patterns, and superior size efficiency compared to the Balanis design. The optimized design features smaller dimensions with a cone diameter of 8.68 cm and cone length of 9.73 cm and boasts the lowest return loss value of approximately -36.022 dB, the highest VSWR value of 1.055 as well as the lowest gain value of 18.265 dBi. In conclusion, this optimized conical horn antenna holds significant potential for practical applications in communication and telecommunications systems within the Ku-Band frequency range.
