We present the results for two different antenna optimization problems that are found using the Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) algorithm. The first problem is finding the maximal forward gain of a Yagi antenna. The second problem is finding the optimal feeding of a broadside antenna array. The optimization problems have 6 and 20 optimization variables, respectively. The preferred values of the parameters of the PSO algorithm are found for presented problems. The results show that the preferred parameters of PSO are somewhat different for optimization problems with different number of dimensions of the optimization space. The results that are found using the PSO algorithm are compared with the results that are found using other optimization algorithms, in order to estimate the efficiency of the PSO.
