Neural models for computing the resonant frequency of electrically thin and thick circular microstrip antennas, based on the multilayered perceptrons and the radial basis function networks, are presented. Five learning algorithms, delta-bar-delta, extended delta-bar-delta, quick-propagation, directed random search and genetic algorithms, are used to train the multilayered perceptrons. The radial basis function network is trained according to its learning strategy. The resonant frequency results of neural models are in very good agreement with the experimental results available in the literature. In this paper, the characteristic impedance and the effective permittivity of the asymmetric coplanar waveguide backed with a conductor are also computed by using only one neural model trained by the backpropagation with momentum and the extended delta-bar-delta algorithms. When the performances of neural models are compared with each other, the best results for test are obtained from the multilayered perceptrons trained by the extended delta-bar-delta algorithm.
