Optimal Rectangular Microstrip Antenna with and without Air Gaps Design by Means of Particle Swarm Optimization and Vortex Search Algorithm

U. Ozkaya, L. Seyfi
Abstract—In this paper, Particle Swarm Optimization and Vortex Search Algorithm are applied to design desired characteristics of rectangular microstrip antenna with and without air gaps. The proposed artificial intelligence algorithms are inspired from natural events or behavior of living things in nature. Resonance frequency and return loss of microstrip antenna are dependence with design parameters. The computed results for dielectric substrate’s height is tuned by Particle Swarm Optimization and Vortex Search Algorithm for optimal design.

Index Terms—Optimization, particle swarm optimization, rectangular microstrip antenna, vortex search algorithm, with and without air gap.

The authors are with Selcuk University, Department of Electrical & Electronics Engineering, Konya, Turkey.
