i am working on microstrip antenna array for first time...i have problem with designing corporate feed network for 4-patch array...
this problem is how to calculate the width w and length L of each section (z0=50 ohms) and for (z0=70.7 and 100 ohms) also the quarter wave transform.

For an exact calculation, you need to model the microstrip line geometry with layered substrate in an EM (respectively AC electrostatic) solver. For an estimation, a weighted average should work. Considering fabrication tolerances due to substrate thickness, resin composition and etch width variations, don't expect better accuracy than +/- 10 % imp

As was stated you need bigger clearance between the 50 ohms microstrip lines and ground plane.
To be outside of the CPW mode, the distance should be at least 1.5 times greater than the microstrip line width.

Yes, it can. microstrips like this are used in amplifiers all the time (outputs usually have a very low output impedance). If the geometry bothers you, you might try different types of filters, or orders. What is your design frequency?

Conductor width/gap ratio to ground should be ~1 for 50 Ohm , otherwise jumpers will appear inductive and cause a return loss problem. More precise calculations can be done with microstrip calculators and network analyzers

Not good means the s11 is -15 - -20dB at my operating frequency.
I want it to be at least -30dB - -35dB.
Any step in width is a discontinuity, and vfone showed the corresponding electrical model. Simulated alone, with no other objects, you will never see good return loss.

Your thought is right. Most probably there is a reflection and mismatch between lines and switches.
Into the simulator, try to separate the stages and check what input/output impedance see each stage separate.
One important thing is that in microstrip design, a smaller strip width leads to higher losses.

My first guess was layout software problems: most of them have no such functionality, you must draw such line using thin lines, fill with something. Stepped line width is very simple. Second guess is that is easier to calculate, but...... with smooth change we have less discontinuity, so it can be wrong that stepped line width change is easier to s
