Progress In Electromagnetics Research M, Vol. 33, 83-94, 2013
Abstract
Planar antenna array design is one of the most important electromagnetic optimization problems of current interest. This paper introduces a recently developed metaheuristic algorithm, known as the Invasive Weed Optimization(IWO), to the pattern synthesis of planar antenna arrays with desired pattern nulls and sidelobe level by amplitude-only and position-only optimization. The steps in the problem formulation are presented along with a design example that illustrates the performance of the IWO algorithm. Three examples have been presented and solved. Simulation results are proposed to compare with published ones to verify the effectiveness of the IWO algorithm for planar arrays.
