This paper describes about the solarcell antenna which is an integrated device used for trans-receiving the RF signal and generates DC voltage simultaneously. Solarcell Antenna consists of Microstrip patch antenna and Solarcells, during integration various parameters of antenna such as substrate (dielectric materials used), shape of the patch, dimensions of feed are to be obtained for desired frequency range. Different shapes of patches, dielectric materials are taken into account and compared with the results in which Microstrip Patch model suits the best for 2.4GHz frequency. We have integrated Solarcells and Microstrip patch antenna using CST Microwave studio software so that it can act as stand-alone system in remote places for various applications such as disaster alert system, moving vehicles, remote sensing, and meteorological surveillance.
