Abstract

In this work, the problem of mutually coupled dipole antenna array failure has been solved using bat algorithm by adjusting only the amplitude excitation of good array elements. The element failure causes the degradation of side-lobe power level to an improper level. A fitness function is formulated to obtain the difference between degraded side-lobe pattern and measured side-lobe pattern, and a flexible approach using bat algorithm is used to minimize this function. Numerical examples of single and multiple element failure correction under mutual coupling conditions are discussed to show the capability of this proposed approach.
