Abstract

This paper proposes an improved adaptive approach involving Bacterial Foraging Algorithm (BFA) to optimize both the amplitude and phase of the weights of a linear array of antennas for maximum array factor at any desired direction and nulls in specific directions. The Bacteria Foraging Algorithm is made adaptive using principle of adaptive delta modulation. To show the improvement in making the algorithm adaptive, results for both adaptive and nonadaptive algorithms are given. It is found that Adaptive Bacteria Foraging Algorithm (ABFA) is capable of improving the speed of convergence as well as the precision in the desired result.
