In this work Schelkunoff’s unit circle approach is combined with the particle swarm optimizer (PSO) to synthesize equispaced small linear arrays. The results obtained by the proposed method are then compared with those of conventional Taylor sampling and root matching technique. This work is concerned with the limitations of applying these synthesis techniques to small linear arrays.
