This paper presents a systematic design approach for low-profile UWB body-of-revolution (BoR) monopole antennas with specified radiation objectives and size constraints. The proposed method combines a random walk scheme, the genetic algorithm, and a BoR moment method analysis for antenna shape optimization. A weighted global cost function, which minimizes the difference between potential optimal points and a utopia point (optimal design combining 3 different objectives) within the criterion… CONTINUE READING
