Closed-form Green's function (CFGF) representations for cylindrically stratified media are developed and used in conjunction with a Galerkin method of moments (MoM) in the space domain for the analysis of microstrip antennas on multilayered circular cylinders. An attachment mode is used in the MoM solution procedure to accurately model the feeding of probe-fed microstrip antennas. The developed CFGF representations are modified in the source region (where two current modes can partially or fully overlap with each other during the MoM procedure) so that singularities can be treated analytically and hence, the proposed CFGF representations can be safely used in this region. Furthermore, accurate CFGF representations for the probe-related components (necessary for probe type excitations including the attachment mode) are obtained when the radial distance between the source and field points is electrically small or zero. Numerical results in the form of input impedance of various microstrip antennas and the mutual coupling between two antennas are presented showing good agreement when compared to the available published results as well as the results obtained from CST Microwave Studio. © 2014 IEEE.
