Using genetic algorithms to develop a conformal VHF antenna
Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
This master thesis describes the design simulation of a conformal antenna for the 88-108MHz
Very high frequency (VHF) broadcast audio frequency-modulation (FM) band. The antenna
is intended to t in the at area inside the head-band of an over ear hearing-protector headset.
The space for the antenna is limited by an existing head-band design, where the unused
internal area is the space studied in this thesis.
A genetic algorithm is described for the multiple objective optimization of the antenna
matching and radiation pattern optimization.
The results of multiple genetic algorithm evaluations are described, and possible further
improvements outlined. Progress is made on the development of the antenna. The antenna
radiation pattern is evolved in desirable way, but a di-culty in solving the antenna matching
problem is identied. Proposals for resolving the antenna matching problem is described in
the final section.
