We report an improved cavity model called modified Wolff model (MWM) to compute the resonance frequency of a rectangular patch antenna on the thick PTFE substrate (0.037/spl lambda//sub g/-0.229/spl lambda//sub g/). The MWM accounts for the effect of anisotropy and total losses on the resonance frequency, therefore it has a maximum deviation 2% against the experimental results. The previous cavity model, the multiport cavity model, and MOM based commercial software, Ensemble, compute resonance frequency with deviation between 4%-36%. Results on the bandwidth computed by these models have also been compared against the experimental results.
