—In this paper, circular and hexagonal array geometries for smart antenna applications are compared. Uniform circular (UCA) and hexagonal arrays (UHA) with 18 half-wave dipole elements are examined; also planar (2 concentric rings of radiators) uniform circular (PUCA) and hexagonal arrays (PUHA) are considered. The effect of rotating the outer ring of the(More)
In this article, the particle swarm optimization algorithm is used to calculate the complex excitations, amplitudes and phases, of the adaptive circular array elements. To illustrate the performance of this method for steering a signal in the desired direction and imposing nulls in the direction of interfering signals by controlling the complex excitation(More)
—In this paper, the interaction of a planar inverted-F antennas array, mounted on a mobile handset, with a human hand-head phantom is investigated in the 1.9 GHz band. The hybrid approach involving the particle swarm optimization (PSO) and Nelder-Mead (NM) algorithm is considered to optimize the complex excitations of the adaptive array elements in a mutual(More)
—In this article, an optimized E-shaped patch antenna for Bluetooth (2.4–2.484 GHz) and UWB (3.1–10.6 GHz) applications with WLAN (5.15–5.825 GHz) band-notched characteristics is proposed. The dimensions of the E-shaped antenna structure in addition to the position of the slotted C-shape in the ground plane are optimized using recent optimization techniques(More)
In this paper, two recent global optimisation techniques: particle swarm optimisation and central force optimisation are considered for optimising the location of the diffusion spots, which are used as transmitters in an indoor optical wireless communications system. The diffusion spots are uniformly distributed along a circle on the ceiling of the(More)
—Recently researchers have great interest in using multi-core processors for applications requiring intensive parallel computing. In this paper, an approach for the implementation of hybrid parallel Gravitational Search Algorithm (GSA) and Nelder-Mead (NM) algorithm using open Multi-Processing (OPEN-MP) on multi-core processors is proposed for beam-forming(More)
The scientific community is still interested in heuristic techniques and optimization algorithms that could be applied in complex problems such as the antenna adaptive beam forming problem. This paper presents an empirical study of solving the problem of antenna adaptive beam forming using Central Force Optimization (CFO) algorithm. The algorithm(More)
