An Investigation of the Performance Limits of Small, Planar Antennas Using Optimisation
MetadataShow full item record
This paper presents a generalised parametrisation as well as an approach to computational optimisation for small, planar antennas. A history of previous, more limited antenna optimisation techniques is discussed and a new parametrisation introduced in this context. Validation of this new approach against previously developed structures is provided and preliminary results of the optimisation are demonstrated and discussed. For the optimisation, a binary Multi- Objective Particle Swarm Optimisation (MOPSO) is used and several methods for generating a viable initial population are introduced and discussed in the context of practical limitations computational simulations.
