Circular Antenna Array Optimization Using Flower Pollination Algorithm
Flower pollination is a fascinating process in the innate world. Its evolutionary features can be utilized to design innovative optimization algorithms for antenna arrays. In this paper, we use flower pollination algorithm, stimulated by pollination practice of flowers for optimizing circular antenna arrays. FPA is utilized to circular array for obtaining optimized positions of antennas to attain array pattern comprising lowest side lobe alongside positioning of deep nulls in needed directions.
