Modified Differential Evolution Algorithm for Pattern Synthesis of Antenna Arrays
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research, Vol. 137, 371-388, 2013
Abstract
A modified differential evolution algorithm (MDE) for pattern synthesis of antenna arrays is proposed in this paper. By employing the novel strategies of best of random mutation and randomized local search, the convergence of standard differential evolution algorithm (SDE) is significantly accelerated. Five standard benchmark functions are optimized to testify the proposed algorithm by comparison with several other optimization algorithms. The numerical results verify the superior performance of the proposed MDE. Furthermore, the MDE is applied to two pattern synthesis examples, including a linear array and a cylindrical conformal array. Experiment results demonstrate that the proposed MDE has better performance than the other optimization methods in both of these two examples, which indicate the proposed algorithm is a competitive optimization algorithm in pattern synthesis.
