In this paper, Simulated Annealing is used for designing a fixed multi-beam antenna array (AA) in a multi-user radio WCDMA system. The method can be used dynamically in a real system and/or in a radio planning tool. The proposed method is applied on a linear array by designing the Antenna Element (AE) pattern, the number of fixed beams, the AE spacing, and the AA transmit weights. The proposed method leads to a substantial BS power reduction which can be used to increase the system capacity or data throughput in a WCDMA system.
