Abstract

Further improvement in the performance of a compact resonant cavity antenna (RCA) with a single planar unprinted superstrate is presented. The RCA design was automated by interfacing the particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithm with a full-wave solver via scripting. Three benchmark functions were used to assist in the selection of such crucial PSO parameters as population size and maximum number of iterations. The optimal RCA has a peak gain of 19.6 dB, overall 3-dB gain bandwidth of 55% and a small footprint.
