In this paper, equilateral triangular microstrip star array antenna was designed for wireless communication applications. The antennas were modeled using microstrip lines, MTEEs and S parameter data for star arrayed triangular element . The data is extracted from the momentum simulation and combined with the microstrip transmission line. The properties of antennas such as bandwidth, gain, cross polar isolation and the return loss have been simulated. Since the resonant frequency is of these antenna is 2. 0GHz, these antenna is suitable for wireless network.
