We present an automatic procedure to fully design a metasurface antenna, including the feeding structure. This feature is achieved by performing preliminary full-wave simulations of the feeding structure and by properly modelling PEC regions inside a current-based numerical design method. The synthesized metasurface antennas are implemented and simulated with a fullwave commercial solver, showing excellent agreement with the predicted performances.
