A Study on a Gain-Enhanced Antenna for Energy Harvesting using Adaptive Particle Swarm Optimization Kang, Seong-In; Kim, Koon-Tae; Lee, Seung-Jae; Kim, Jeong-Phill; Choi, Kyung; Kim, Hyeong-Seok;
In this paper, the adaptive particle swarm optimization (APSO) algorithm is employed to design a gain-enhanced antenna with a reflector for energy harvesting. We placed the reflector below the main radiating element. Its back-radiated field is reflected and added to the forward radiated field, which could increase the antenna gain. We adopt the adaptive particle swarm optimization (APSO) algorithm, which improves the speed of convergence with a high frequency solver. The result shows that performance of the optimized design successfully satisfied the design goal of the frequency band, gain and axial ratio.
