To meet antenna design specifications under realistic conditions, electromagnetic coupling effects between the antenna and its environment must be considered. In this work, an efficient antenna design optimization methodology that considers the influence of the human head and main mobile handset components on the antenna performance is presented. The computational optimization time is dramatically reduced by exploiting a Broyden‐based input space mapping (SM) algorithm. Both coarse and fine…
