Part of the Topics in Intelligent Engineering and Informatics book series (TIEI, volume 2)


This chapter describes utilization of differential evolution algorithm in process of optimal design of microstrip filters. Main part of the chapter is dedicated to the definition of cost function, where filter design criteria are inserted to the process by tolerance scheme and mathematical model used for evaluation of microstrip filter magnitude response. The solution found is evaluated and compared to a conventional design in the concluding part of the chapter. Discussion of difference between realized samples and mathematical model is also presented at the end of this chapter.
