A microstrip patch antennas (MPA) with self-powered ability have shown great interest especially in providing low-cost, green electricity and reliable continuous signal, for wireless surveillance monitoring systems. Although MPA has a low profile, lightweight, and inexpensive, the conventional MPA has limitations in terms of bandwidth and gain, where these two components are im portant towards the antenna’s performance. A battery-powered device tends to drain quickly over time and is bulky to transport. In this paper, a new design of a self-powered MPA that integrates a defective ground structure (DGS) and short- ing pin techniques are introduced. The MPA results show a return loss of less than −10 dB, directivity of 7.2 dB, a bandwidth improvement of 57.81%, and a gain of 6.36 dB. The proposed MPA is then connected to a solar cell circuit design for a self-powered system. In the system configuration, the XL4015 DC/DC buck converter’s input is directly connected to the 20-W solar panel, the output to a TS5828 5.8 GHz transmitter, and the First-person view (FPV) camera to power up the MPA. The system can operate up to 16.5 m away from the receiver and 15.5 m away from the transmitter, enable the proposed system to serve as a self-powered wireless surveillance monitoring system at 5.8 GHz.
