A numerical technique for improving the accuracy of a rectangular loop antenna based on the Finite Difference Time Domain (FDTD) method is proposed. In this technique, a quasi-static field behaviour is incorporated into the FDTD update equations, and the more accurate numerical technique can be obtained without the need of using fine cells. The simulation results of this proposed technique are compared with the Method of Moment to confirm the effectiveness of the technique.
