Abstract

This paper introduces a novel technique for efficiently combining implicit space mapping (ISM) with method of moments (MoM) for the synthesis of antenna arrays and explores several example applications of the ISM approach. The antenna arrays geometric parameters are extracted to be optimized by ISM, and a fitness function is evaluated by MoM simulations to represent the performance of each candidate design. A coarse-mesh MoM and a fine-mesh MoM solver are used for the coarse and the fine models, respectively. To achieve the parameter extraction, the auxiliary parameter is selected and the approximation between the two models is accomplished by particle swarm optimization (PSO). The results show that the running time of the ISM algorithm is 2~3 times faster than that of other optimization algorithms (e.g. PSO).
