This paper compares the performances of a number of uniform circular array (UCA) configurations for phased array antennas. A UCA geometry is targeted due to its symmetrical configuration which enables the phased array antenna to scan azimuthally with minimal changes in its beam width and sidelobe levels. Each UCA configuration consists of 19 isotropic elements. Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) is used to calculate the complex weights of the antenna array elements in order to adapt the antenna… CONTINUE READING
