Multiobjective Electromagnetic Optimization of RF components and systems

Davide Tallini (CST)

In this presentation one of the challenges to be accomplished by the simulation tool is the ability to contribute more and more to the increasing wish of a shorter time to market of the RF product. To this aim Multi-objective optimization has been considered, combining the strength of CST MWS2, one of the most applied 3D electromagnetic simulation tool, with modeFRONTIER 3. Seamless integrated with modeFRONTIER by means of a direct node, CST electromagnetic simulation is automatically driven by a full batch process, that doesn’t require human intervention. Multi-objective optimization approach has been successfully applied to several real case studies, being always able to meet the RF design requirements and showing the capability of efficiently exploiting the space domain during the optima search phase.
