Accelerated multi-objective design of miniaturized microwave components by means of nested kriging surrogatesPublication
Design of microwave components is an inherently multiobjective task. Often, the objectives are at least partially conflicting and the designer has to work out a suitable compromise. In practice, generating the best possible trade‐off designs requires multiobjective optimization, which is a computationally demanding task. If the structure of interest is evaluated through full‐wave electromagnetic (EM) analysis, the employment of...
Surrogate modeling of impedance matching transformers by means of variable‐fidelity electromagnetic simulations and nested cokrigingPublication
Accurate performance evaluation of microwave components can be carried out using full‐wave electromagnetic (EM) simulation tools, routinely employed for circuit verification but also in the design process itself. Unfortunately, the computational cost of EM‐driven design may be high. This is especially pertinent to tasks entailing considerable number of simulations (eg, parametric optimization, statistical analysis). A possible...
Analysis of circular polarization antenna design trade‐offs using low‐cost EM‐driven multiobjective optimizationPublication
Circular polarization (CP) antennas are vital components of modern communication systems. Their design involves handling several requirements such as low reflection and axial ratio (AR) within the frequency range of interest. Small size is an important criterion for antenna mobility which is normally achieved as a by‐product of performance‐oriented modifications of the structure topology. In this work, multiobjective optimization...
Redesigning a microwave circuit for various operating conditions is a practically important yet challenging problem. The purpose of this article is development and presentation of a technique for fast geometry scaling of miniaturized microwave couplers with respect to operating frequency. Our approach exploits an inverse surrogate model constructed using several reference designs that are optimized for a set of operating frequencies...
Numerically efficient algorithm for compact microwave device optimization with flexible sensitivity updating schemePublication
An efficient trust-region algorithm with flexible sensitivity updating management scheme for electromagnetic (EM)-driven design optimization of compact microwave components is proposed. During the optimization process, updating of selected columns of the circuit response Jacobian is performed using a rank-one Broyden formula (BF) replacing finite differentiation (FD). The FD update is omitted for directions sufficiently well aligned...
Generalized Pareto ranking bisection for computationally feasible multi-objective antenna optimizationPublication
Multi-objective optimization (MO) allows for obtaining comprehensive information about possible design trade-offs of a given antenna structure. Yet, executing MO using the most popular class of techniques, population-based metaheuristics, may be computationally prohibitive when full-wave EM analysis is utilized for antenna evaluation. In this work, a low-cost and fully deterministic MO methodology is introduced. The proposed generalized...
Inverse modeling for fast design optimization of small-size rat-race couplers incorporating compact cellsPublication
In the paper, a framework for computationally-efficient design optimization of compact rat-race couplers (RRCs) is discussed. A class of hybrid RRCs with variable operating conditions is investigated, whose size reduction is obtained by replacing ordinary transmission lines with compact microstrip resonant cells (CMRCs). Our approach employs a bottom-up design strategy leading to the development of compact RRCs through rapid design...
Low-cost multiband compact branch-line coupler design using response features and automated EM model fidelity adjustmentPublication
Design closure of compact microwave components is a challenging problem because of significant electromagnetic (EM) cross-couplings in densely arranged layouts. A separate issue is a large number of designable parameters resulting from replacement of conventional transmission line sections by compact microstrip resonant cells. This increases complexity of the design optimization problem and requires employment of expensive high-fidelity...
Multi-objective design optimization of antennas for reflection, size, and gain variability using kriging surrogates and generalized domain segmentationPublication
Cost-efficient multi-objective design optimization of antennas is presented. The framework exploits auxiliary data-driven surrogates, a multi-objective evolutionary algorithm for initial Pareto front identification, response correction techniques for design refinement, as well as generalized domain segmentation. The purpose of this last mechanism is to reduce the volume of the design space region that needs to be sampled in order...
Fast surrogate models can play an important role in reducing the cost of EM-driven design closure of miniaturized microwave components. Unfortunately, construction of such models is challenging due to curse of dimensionality and wide range of geometry parameters that need to be included in order to make it practically useful. In this letter, a novel approach to design-oriented modeling of compact couplers is presented. Our method...
Rapid design closure of microwave components by means of feature-based optimization and adjoint sensitivitiesPublication
In this article, fast design closure of microwave components using feature-based optimization (FBO) and adjoint sensitivities is discussed. FBO is one of the most recent optimization techniques that exploits a particular structure of the system response to “flatten” the functional landscape handled during the optimization process, which leads to reducing its computational complexity. When combined with gradient-based search involving...
Recent advances in rapid multiobjective optimization of expensive simulation models in microwave and antenna engineering by Pareto front explorationPublication
Practical engineering design problems are inherently multiobjective, that is, require simultaneous control of several (and often conflicting) criteria. In many situations, genuine multiobjective optimization is required to acquire comprehensive information about the system of interest. The most popular solution techniques are populationbased metaheuristics, however, they are not practical for handling expensive electromagnetic...
Reduced-cost surrogate modeling of input characteristics and design optimization of dual-band antennas using response featuresPublication
In this article, a procedure for low-cost surrogate modeling of input characteristics of dual-band antennas has been discussed. The number of training data required for construction of an accurate model has been reduced by representing the antenna reflection response to the level of suitably defined feature points. The points are allocated to capture the critical features of the reflection characteristic, such as the frequencies...
In this work, a method for fast design optimization of broadband antennas is considered. The approach is based on a feature-based optimization (FBO) concept where reflection characteristics of the structure at hand are formulated in terms of suitably defined feature points. Redefinition of the design problem allows for reducing the design optimization cost, because the dependence of feature point coordinates on antenna dimensions...
In this article, a reliable and low-cost design methodology for simulation-driven optimization of miniaturized rat-race couplers (RRCs) is presented. We exploit a two-stage design approach, where a composite structure (a basic building block of the RRC structure) is first optimized using a pattern search algorithm, and, subsequently, the entire coupler is tuned by means of surrogate-based optimization (SBO) procedure. SBO is executed...
A simple and robust algorithm for computationally efficient design optimiza-tion of microwave filters is presented. Our approach exploits a trust-region (TR)-based algorithm that utilizes linear approximation of the filter response obtained using adjoint sensitivity. The algorithm is sequentially executed on a family of electromagnetic (EM)-simulated models of different fidelities, starting from a coarse-discretization one, and...
