Abstract

This paper presents a novel multi-objective optimization of printed microstrip-fed monopole antenna for ultra wideband (UWB) applications. Two objective functions are minimized in this design: return loss and transient distortion. Using this method, a set of optimum antennas are achieved instead of a single design. Optimization is performed to reduce distortion in different scenarios. When distortion reduction only in E-plane or in both of E- and H-planes is considered, the obtained set of applying this algorithm dominates reported UWB antennas. Therefore, the obtained result provides a set of proper designs for UWB systems with random physical orientationt.
