Abstract

In this work, a simple yet reliable technique for fast multi-objective design optimization of miniaturized microwave structures is discussed. The proposed methodology is based on point-by-point identification of a Pareto-optimal set of designs representing the best possible trade-offs between conflicting objectives such as electrical performance parameters as well as the size of the structure of interest. For the sake of computational efficiency, most operations are performed on suitably corrected equivalent circuit model of the structure under design. Model correction is implemented using a space mapping technique involving, among others, frequency scaling. Our approach is demonstrated using a compact rat-race coupler. For this specific example, a set of ten designs representing a Pareto set for two objectives (electrical performance and the layout area) is identified at the cost corresponding to less than thirty high-fidelity EM simulations of the structure.
