Abstract: A wideband optimization technique of a Resonant Cavity Antenna (RCA) is demonstrated using a very simple and efficient Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) approach. The proposed optimization method appears to be attractive as it is driven conveniently by a commercial EM-simulator. This may be treated as a 70-dimensional as well as a wideband optimization problem to optimize ten antenna parameters. The proposed technique offers maximum about 17.6 dBi broadside gain using the optimally designed antenna. The peak-gain is maintained above 11 dBi over the 50% antenna bandwidth.
