Abstract

Cuckoo optimization Algorithm (COA) is employed for the optimization of linear and non-uniform circular antenna arrays. COA is a novel nature inspired computing algorithm which is motivated by the life of Cuckoo. Like other nature-inspired algorithms, COA is also a population-based method and uses a population of solutions to proceed to the global solution. The method of COA is used to determine a set of parameters of antenna elements that provide the required radiation pattern. The effectiveness of COA for the design of antenna arrays is shown by means of numerical results. Comparison of results obtained with COA is made with that obtained using other popular methods. The results reveal the superior performance of COA as compared to other techniques both for design of linear and circular antenna arrays.
