Evolutionary Computation of Multi-Band Antenna Using Multi-Objective Evolutionary Algorithm Based on Decomposition
Design of multi-band antenna involves multiple characteristics such as return loss in multiple operation bands. To apply MOEA/D (multi-objective evolutionary algorithm based on decomposition) to antenna structure optimization, it was introduced into this field for the first time. MOEA/D framework was demonstrated at first. Then it was in conjunction with electromagnetic solver, HFSS (high frequency structure simulator) to optimize and design tri-band bow-tie antenna to serve as an example. The evolutionary results showed that MOEA/D worked efficiently and generated multiple candidate structures at one single iteration, and that MOEA/D had lower computational overhead than NSGA-II (non-dominated sorting genetic algorithm II) for this problem. Therefore, MOEA/D shows great potential for antenna structure optimization and design.
