<p><strong>Findings.</strong> The proposed technical solution consists in choosing the optimal design of the radiating module in the form of a triangular microstrip antenna, by means of mathematical modeling, the values of the geometric dimensions of the triangle, the thickness of the dielectric layer and the value of its dielectric constant, the overall dimensions of the radiating module, which ensure optimal coordination of the antenna with the power feeder in the form of a microstrip line. The developed computer model of the triangular microstrip antenna using the finite-difference method in the time domain allows conducting research on the parameters of this antenna that provide stable wireless communication between the system of sensors and the home automation control unit. The condition for increasing the degree of matching the impedance of the antenna and the supply line is the choice of the method of powering the antenna. It was established that the most optimal way of feeding a triangular antenna is the method of connecting the microstrip line to the middle of the side of the triangle, compared to the way of connecting the power line to the top of the triangle. The width of the microstrip power line was optimized according to the criterion of minimizing the module of the reflection coefficient at the antenna input. A study of the degree of matching the impedance of the antenna at operating frequencies of 2,4 and 7 GHz was carried out. At a frequency of 7 GHz, the magnitude of the reflection coefficient module is -23,6776 dB. The three-dimensional and two-dimensional radiation patterns of this antenna are calculated. The radiation pattern has an almost spherical shape, that is, it allows placing the radiating module in any orientation relative to the earth’s surface. This allows the triangular microstrip antenna to be used as a radiating module of the building energy management system and the smart home system.</p>
<p><strong>Originality.</strong> The study of the ways of feeding the triangular microstrip antenna allows to find the optimal coupling of the antenna with the power line, which ensures the formation of radiation characteristics that ensure effective interaction between the sensors and the building’s energy management control system.</p>
<p><strong>Practical value.</strong> The radiation characteristics of a triangular microstrip antenna obtained as a result of the study make it possible to use it to organize a wireless communication channel in a 4% operating frequency band.</p>}, number={4}, journal={Electrical Engineering and Power Engineering}, author={Magro, V.I. and Plaksin, S.V.}, year={2023}, month={Jan.}, pages={15–23} }
