In particular, an artificial neural network (ANN) is proposed to predict the phase behaviour of a broadband patch radiator as a function of its geometric parameters. The characterization of the antenna is first obtained by numerical simulations, and the ANN is constructed to approximate the nonlinear relationship between the antenna geometry and the phase behaviour. Some preliminary results are provided to demonstrate the effectiveness of this method in providing a fast interface between the antenna model and the optimisation tool.
