Résumé : 

This paper presents numerical study of ultrawideband(UWB) patch antenna using both the FiniteDifference Time Domain (FDTD) method and Ansoft HFSSSoftware. The patch antenna, which consists of a rectangularmonopole, is fed by microstrip line and operates from 3 to 10.9GHz, covering the UWB frequency band. The numericalresults, obtained from computed FDTD model and HFSSsimulation, are given and compared in terms of reflectioncoefficients and radiation patterns, and show good agreements.
