Abstract [en]

This master thesis describes the design simulation of a conformal antenna for the 88-108MHz

Very high frequency (VHF) broadcast audio frequency-modulation (FM) band. The antenna

is intended to t in the  at area inside the head-band of an over ear hearing-protector headset.

The space for the antenna is limited by an existing head-band design, where the unused

internal area is the space studied in this thesis.

A genetic algorithm is described for the multiple objective optimization of the antenna

matching and radiation pattern optimization.

The results of multiple genetic algorithm evaluations are described, and possible further

improvements outlined. Progress is made on the development of the antenna. The antenna

radiation pattern is evolved in desirable way, but a di-culty in solving the antenna matching

problem is identied. Proposals for resolving the antenna matching problem is described in

the final section.
