This paper presents a structural optimization method for microstrip components based on topology optimization method. Topology optimization method optimizes structures via characteristic function that indicates the presence of materials at any point. In the proposed method, microstrips are modeled using an appropriate boundary condition of the utilized numerical methods. By controlling the parameter of the boundary condition locally, it is possible to represent any configuration in the given… CONTINUE READING
