Abstract Co active neural networks & Fuzzy Inference System (CANFIS) are electronic systems which can be trained to remember behavior of a modeled structure in given operational points, and which can be used to approximate behavior of the structure out of the training points. These approximation abilities of neural nets are demonstrated on modeling a microstrip antenna. Parameters are turned to the accuracy and to the efficiency of neural models. The association of neural models and fuzzy algorithms in microstrip antenna design is discussed in this paper. The CANFIS (Co-Active Neuro-Fuzzy Inference System) model integrates adaptable fuzzy inputs with a modular neural network to rapidly and accurately approximate complex functions. Fuzzy inference systems are also valuable as they combine the explanatory nature of rules (membership functions) with the power of "black box" neural networks. Keywords: Co active neural networks & Fuzzy Inference System, microstrip antennas, modeling, optimization

design and analysis of microstrip antennas in rectangular form. In this work, the width and the length for designing of rectangular microstrip antennas are obtained by using new method based on artificial neural networks. The artificial neural networks are developed from neurophysiology by morphologically and computationally mimicking human brains. Although the precise operation details of artificial neural networks are quite different from human brains, they are similar in three aspects: they consist of a very large number of processing elements each neuron connects to a large number of other neurons, and the functionality of networks is determined by modifying the strengths of connections during a learning phase. The purpose of this article is to provide an overview of recent developments in the design and analysis of microstrip antenna using neural network and this is illustrated by taking an illustrative example of microstrip antenna design using ANN. 2. CANFIS Architecture



Microstrip antennas due to their many attractive features have drawn popularity among researchers and for industrial application. In high-performance spacecraft, aircraft, airship, aerostat, missile, and satellite applications, where size, weight, cost, performance, ease of installation, and aerodynamic profiles are constraints, low profile antennas may be required. Presently, there are many government and commercial applications such as mobile, radio, and wireless communications that have similar specifications. To meet these requirements, microstrip antennas can be used [13]. In the literature, artificial neural network (ANN) models have been built for the

Figure.1 CANFIS Architecture Figure.1 shows the adaptive neuro fuzzy inference system. Fuzzy a rule-based systems and artificial neural networks originated from different philosophies and were originally considered independent of each other. Later studies revealed that

they actually have a close relation. Buckley et al. [1] discussed the functional equivalence between neural networks and fuzzy expert systems. The integration of fuzzy logic and neural networks has given birth to an emerging technology field, fuzzy neural networks. The theory of fuzzy logic provides a mathematical strength to capture the uncertainties associated with human cognitive processes, such as thinking and reasoning, also it provides a mathematical morphology to emulate certain perceptual and linguistic attributes associated with human cognition. While fuzzy theory provides an inference mechanism under cognitive uncertainty, computational neural networks offer exciting advantages such as learning, adaptation, fault-tolerance, parallelism and generalization. The computational neural networks are capable of coping with computational complexity, nonlinearity and uncertainty. It is interesting to note that fuzzy logic is another powerful tool for modeling uncertainties associated with human cognition, thinking and perception [2,3]. Many authors have proposed various neuro-fuzzy models as well as complex training algorithms. Of these, Jang [4] proposed the famous neuro-fuzzy model ANFIS (adaptive network-based fuzzy inference system), which has beensuccessfully applied in various fields. In ANFIS, the hybrid learning algorithm is adopted that integrates the BP successfully applied in various fields. In ANFIS, the hybrid learning algorithm is adopted that integrates the BP(Backward Propagation) algorithm with the recursive least squares algorithm to adjust parameters. ANFIS was laterextended to the coactive ANFIS in [5] and to the generalized ANFIS in [6]. Horikawa et al. [7] proposed a neuro-fuzzy model using sigmoid functions to generate the bell-shape input membership functions and trained it with the BP algorithm. However, some practical difficulties associated with gradient descent are slow convergence and ineffectiveness at finding a good solution [8]. The Proposed Neuro-Fuzzy Model The proposed neurofuzzy model is a multilayer neural network-based fuzzy system and the system has a total of five layers. In this connectionist structure, the input and output nodes represent the input states and output reponse, respectively, and in the hidden layers, there are nodes functioning as membership functions (MFs) and rules. This eliminates the disadvantage of a normal feedforward multilayer network, which is difficult for an observer to understand or to modify. Throughout the simulation examples presented in this paper, all the MFs used are bell-shaped (Gaussian) functions defined

as: (x) = exp - ((x- c)2 / 2 ) A Gaussian membership function is determined by c and : c represents the centre of the MF; and determines the width of the MF. A detailed description of the components of the model's structure and functionalities, and the philosophy behind this architecture are given below.


Input Layer

Nodes in this layer are input nodes that represent input linguistic variables as crisp values. The nodes in this layer only transmit input values to the next layer, the membership function layer. Each node is connected to only those nodes of layer 2, which represent the linguistic values of corresponding linguistic variables. b. Fuzzy Input Layer

Nodes in this layer act as membership functions to represent the terms of the respective linguistic variables. The input values are fed to fuzzy input layer that calculates the membership degrees. This is implemented using Gaussian membership functions with two parameters, mean (or centre, c ) and variance (or width, ).This layer implements fuzzification for the inputs. It represents fuzzy quantization of input variables. yt( FI) = exp - ( ((x(I ) - c)2 / 2 ) c. Rule Nodes Layer

The third layer contains rule nodes that evolve through learning. Evolving means all nodes on the third layer are created during learning. The rule nodes represent prototypes of input-output data associations that can be graphically represented as associations of hyper-spheres from the fuzzy input and the fuzzy output space. Hence, the functions of the layer are yt( R) = min yi( F) ; with I is the element of It where I t is the set of indices of the nodes in fuzzy layer that are connected to node t in Rule layer and yi( F) is the output of node i in Fuzzy input layer. d. Fuzzy Output Layer

The fourth layer is fuzzy output layer where each node represents fuzzy quantisation of the output variables. The activation of the node represents the degree to which this membership function is supported by all fuzzy rules together. The connection weights wkj of the links connecting nodes k in fuzzy output layer to nodes j in rule nodes layer represent conceptually the CFs of the corresponding fuzzy rules when inferring fuzzy output values. yt( R) = min (yi(R) wik(F)) where Ik is the set of indices of the nodes in Rule layer that are connected to the node k in Fuzzy output e. layer. 5. Output Layer

given in Table 1 and. Simulation has done on Neurosolution 6 and CST 4. References

This represents the output variables of the system. These nodes and the links attached to them act as a defuzzifier. A node in this layer computes a crisp output signal. The output variable layer makes the defuzzification for fuzzy output variables. The input-output relationship of the units in each layer are defined by the following equations:


k k

FO, R tk

ykFO tk ctk ykFO k

FO, R tk

Where ctk and tk are respectively, the centroid and width of the membership function of the output linguistic value represented by k in Fuzzy output layer. 3. Results A. Structures of the CANFIS The CANFIS network, which has a configuration of 4 input neurons, 10 and 5 neurons in 2 hidden layers, and 2 output neurons with learning rate = 0.1, goal = 0.001, was trained for 400 epochs.
