The performance of space mapping (SM) optimization algorithms depends primarily on the quality of the underlying coarse model. Models available in the microwave area can be cheap but inaccurate or accurate but too expensive. Here, we consider a multicoarse-model technique that allows us to combine the merits of both types of coarse models to substantially reduce the overall computational cost of optimization in comparison to traditional SM.

Distributed fine model evaluation for rapid space-mapping optimisation of microwave structures
A novel implementation of a space-mapping (SM) algorithm for optimisation of microwave structures and devices is described. The algorithm uses two techniques to speed up the SM optimisation process:
Tuning space mapping optimization exploiting embedded surrogate elements
A simple microwave design optimization/tuning technique is proposed by substituting sections in the electromagnetic (EM) model with corresponding sections of designable equivalent (surrogate) elements.
Space Mapping Design Framework Exploiting Tuning Elements
This work alters an electromagnetic model by embedding suitable tuning elements, then aligns the resulting tuning model with the original unaltered EM model to designate the aligned tuning model as surrogate for design optimization purposes.
Reliable design optimization of microwave structures using multipoint‐response‐correction space mapping and trust regions
A multipoint response correction is proposed that generalizes the concept of outputSM and retains the benefits of output SM but also enhances sensitivity matching between the two models, which results in improved performance of the SM optimization process.
Reliable Space-Mapping Optimization Integrated With EM-Based Adjoint Sensitivities
A robust space mapping algorithm exploiting electromagnetic (EM)-based adjoint sensitivities and trust region methods to improve an SM algorithm at three levels to build a better overall surrogate while ensuring convergence and to speed up and safeguard the parameter extraction steps.
Computationally Efficient Design Optimization of Compact Microwave and Antenna Structures
This chapter reviews some of the recent advances and applications of SBO techniques for the design of compact microwave and antenna structures and highlights the common feature of the presented techniques is that a final design can be obtained at the cost of a few evaluations of the high-fidelity EM-simulated model of the optimized structure.
Global optimization of integrated transformers for high frequency microwave circuits using a Gaussian process based surrogate model
The results show that GPDECO can generate high performance RF passive components that cannot be generated by the available efficient methods and can achieve comparable results but only costs 20%-25% of the computational effort.
Computationally-Efficient EM-Simulation-Driven Multi-objective Design of Compact Microwave Structures
This chapter considers an optimization methodology based on point-by-point identification of a Pareto-optimal set of designs representing the best possible trade-offs between conflicting objectives, which include electrical performance parameters as well as the size of the structure of interest.

It is demonstrated that the response corrected tuning model can serve as a high-performance surrogate for fast yield estimation and design centering and enhance a tuning space mapping algorithm through a response correction.
