INTERFERENCE SUPPRESSION OF LINEAR ANTENNA ARRAYS BY AMPLITUDE-ONLY CONTROL USING A BACTERIAL FORAGING ALGORITHM

By K. Guney and S. Basbug

Full Article PDF (467 KB)

Abstract:
This paper presents a bacterial foraging algorithm (BFA) for null steering of linear antenna arrays by controlling only the element amplitudes. The BFA is a new evolutionary computing technique based on the foraging behavior of Escherichia (E.) coli bacteria in human intestine. To show the accuracy and flexibility of the proposed BFA, several examples of Chebyshev array pattern with the imposed single, multiple and broad nulls are given. It is found that the nulling method based on BFA is capable of steering the array nulls precisely to the undesired interference directions.
