Abstract

Differential Evolution is a class of Evolutionary Optimization algorithms. Antenna array pattern synthesis for interference suppression without significant loss in gain has become a centre of attraction to many researchers. This paper aims at overall sidelobe performance improvement of broadside uniformly excited circular antenna array by finding near-appropriate locations of elements. For this work, Differential Evolution with Best of Random mutation strategy is utilized.
