The patch antennas as antenna array element can be modeling by finite element method (programs Microwave Office, Ansoft HFSS and other). But this method need to use fast computer with memory large size. In this work the authors make an attempt to use thin wire integral equation method for patch antenna analysis. The results of modeling by proposed method are compared with the same of modeling by finite elements method and experimental results.
