In this paper, simulated annealing algorithms are applied to the analyses of nonlinearly loaded antenna arrays. The analysis is first transformed into an optimization problem and then be solved by simulated annealing algorithms. Numerical examples show that the results calculated by the proposed method are consistent with those of other published papers. Nearly global optimum solutions can be obtained since the simulated annealing algorithm is inherently a direct searching method. It should be noted that the array mutual coupling effects are included in the analyses of this paper.
