Performance of Micro strip Patch Antenna with three different configurations of substrate materials has been analyzed and presented in this paper. It is shown that the Micro strip Patch Antenna with square EBG Structure achieve a high gain and large Bandwidth as compared to conventional Micro strip Patch Antenna. Placement of EBG Superstrate from the patch of Antenna is critical so distance between antenna and Superstrate and thickness of Superstrate is optimized to achieve best performance and is obtained when EBG Superstrate is placed at half of the operating wavelength from the Patch of the Antenna. The proposed structures are simulated on CST Microwave Studio Suite.
