The design of miniaturized and efficient patch antennas has been a main topic of research in the past two decades. The fractal patch antennas have provided a good solution to this problem. But, in fractal antennas, finding the location of optimum feed point is a very difficult task. In this chapter, a novel method of using GRNN-GA hybrid model is presented to find the optimum feed location. The results of this hybrid model are compared with the simulation results of IE3D which are in good agreement.
