Reconfigurable antenna arrays that are capable of radiating with multiple power patterns using a single power divider network are desirable for many applications. We use the particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithm to perform dual-beam array optimization. Novel features of the PSO algorithm are its generality and ease of implementation over a wide range of electromagnetic problems. The problem investigated is as follows: design a reconfigurable dual-beam 20 element array such that the same… CONTINUE READING
