I would guess the transmission line Z is around 70ohm like other 1/4 wavelength dipole antennas.
According to literature, it's more complicated. As a simplified idea, imagine that the characteristic feed line impedance loaded by the dipole elements equals the antenna input impedance. So it's always higher (...)

how to calculate the minimum separation between body and wearable antennas. if it's very small the absorption because of body will be high and and also it effects the input impedance and the radiation pattern of the antenna.

I need simulate an antenna in HFSS for RFID. The internal impedance of IC at 915MHz is 12.8-j248 (NXP UCODE7). This is a serie impedance.
To simulate this impedance I use a Lumped port with equivalent parallel resistance Rp ~ 4.837K and a capacitance of 0.7pF in parallel using a lumped RLC. Both in parallel connected to a (...)

you need to plot the input impedance of the antenna which is, in the case of single port network, Z11. The real part should be around 50 and the imaginary part should be crossing zero at that point. An alternative way is to plot S11 and the antenna is considered to be matched when S11<=-10dB.

There are discussions in C.A. Balanis' classic antenna book, as I can remember. As a rule of thumb, try different feed locations along the middle line of the patch. A feed location at the patch edge leads to the maximum input impedance, while a feed location at the patch center brings about an equivalent short. Therefore the feed location (...)

Each capacitor appears Zc=1/(2pif*C) + ESR. the diodes are dynamic resistance and depend on size.
You wont be able to match the impedance because the coupling current and spacing loss makes the input impedance high and the closer you get, it can drop below 50 Ohms.
You are much better off using a step-down inductive coil (...)

Resonance (when looking from a 50 Ohms port) is not required for the chip as the chip doesn't show a real load to the antenna. You need to have an almost conjugated match.
