This work demonstrates the design of a single band Electromagnetic Band Gap (EBG) antenna by employing an open stub EBG microstrip of a patch antenna for better achievements in terms of its performance to be utilized in a reconfigurable harvester to operate over a wide input power range. The EBG antenna has been used to gather RF energy and a FET-transistor has been obtainable to determine and control the power flow with the intention to operate at the same time for a different level of input power. The measured data of the EBG antenna shows a directivity of 8.52 dBi, a gain of 7.18 dBi, a return loss of −27 dB with a radiation efficiency of 84.3%, showing a clear enhancement in directivity, peak realized gain, and radiation efficiency by 41.76%, 25.61%, and 17.12% respectively compared with a regular reference antenna; without utilized the EBG structure. Moreover, the harvester design accomplishes 40% of RF-DC power conversion efficiency over a wide dynamic input power range from −15 to 27 dBm, and its peak is around 78%. The harvester is designed to work at the ISM band for 915 MHz and is suitable for Wireless Power Transfer (WPT) uses.
