Abstract

An optimal synthesis of a wideband log-periodic dipole array (LPDA) is introduced in this paper. The LPDA optimization is performed under several requirements concerning the standing wave ratio, the forward gain, the gain flatness, the front-to-back ratio, and the sidelobe level, over a wide frequency range. The LPDA geometry that complies with the aforementioned requirements is suitable for efficient multimedia content delivery. The optimization process is accomplished by applying a recently introduced method called invasive weed optimization (IWO). The method has already been compared to other evolutionary methods and has shown superiority in solving complex nonlinear problems in telecommunications and electromagnetics. In this paper, the IWO method has been chosen to optimize an LPDA for operation in the frequency range of 800-3300 MHz. Due to its excellent performance, the LPDA can effectively be used for multimedia content reception over future mobile computing systems.
