Abstract

In this paper, we present a comparison study between phase-only and amplitude-phase synthesis of symmetrical dual-pattern linear antenna arrays using floating-point or real-valued genetic algorithms (GA). Examples include a sum pattern and a sector beam pattern. In the former, phase is only optimized with predetermined Gaussian amplitude distribution of fixed dynamic range ratio (|amax / amin|) and in the latter, both are optimized with less dynamic range ratio than the former and yet share a common amplitude distribution.
