Notice: As of 2014 and for the forthcoming years, the publication frequency/periodicity of WSEAS Journals is adapted to the 'continuously updated' model. What this means is that instead of being separated into issues, new papers will be added on a continuous basis, allowing a more regular flow and shorter publication times. The papers will appear in reverse order, therefore the most recent one will be on top.

ABSTRACT: This paper describes the original results obtained in the field of multi-beam annular ring antenna array pattern synthesis for the modes TM11 and TM12, by applying an iterative algorithm for phased arrays, which is able to produce low side-lobe level patterns with multiple prescribed main lobes. The proposed method is based on the adaptive particle swarm optimization algorithm. This solution is characterized by its simple implementation and a reduced computational time to achieve the desired radiation patterns. These advantages make the presented algorithm suitable for a wide range of communication systems. The original results obtained in the field of antenna array pattern synthesis are presented and, several illustrative examples are simulated to verify the validity of the proposed method.
