Comparison of Adaptive-Network-Based Fuzzy Inference System Models for Analysis of Conductor-Backed Asymmetric Coplanar Waveguides
A method based on adaptive-network-based fuzzy inference system (ANFIS) is presented for the analysis of conductor-backed asymmetric coplanar waveguides (CPWs). Four optimization algorithms, hybrid learning, simulated annealing, genetic, and least-squares, are used to determine optimally the design parameters of the ANFIS. The results of ANFIS models are compared with the results of conformal mapping technique, a commercial electromagnetic simulator IE3D, and the experimental works realized in this study. There is very good agreement among the results of ANFIS models, quasi-static method, IE3D, and experimental works. The proposed ANFIS models are not only valid for conductor-backed asymmetric CPWs but also valid for conductor-backed symmetric CPWs.
