Concentric Circular Antenna Array Synthesis Using a Differential Invasive Weed Optimization Algorithm

By Siddharth Pal, Aniruddha Basak, Swagatam Das, Ajith Abraham and Ivan Zelinka


Abstract: Concentric Circular Antenna Array (CCAA) has several interesting features that makes it indispensable in mobile and communication applications. Here we have considered a uniform arrangement of elements where the interelement spacing is kept half a wavelength. The main aim is to reduce the sidelobe levels and the primary lobe beamwidth as much as possible. Central to our design is a hybridization of two prominent metaheuristics of current interest namely the Invasive Weed Optimization (IWO) and Differential Evolution (DE). The results of the DIWO algorithm have been shown to perform better then other state-of-the-art metaheuristics like th
