Abstract

This paper presents the application of the Partial Element Equivalent Circuit (PEEC) approach, which is a full wave electromagnetic modelling technique for conductors embedded in arbitrary dielectrics based on equivalent circuits, to the optimal design of antennas with non-uniform spacing between the array elements. The design optimization problem is solved by means of the new nature-inspired Cheetah metaheuristic. The main aim of this paper is to introduce the Cheetah optimization algorithm to the electromagnetics and antenna community. The results are compared to two well-known optimization algorithms and to show the effectiveness of the proposed algorithm on a realistic benchmark problem.
