Abstract: Impedance matching networks have wide range of application in the field of communication. Recent survey of literatures show different design procedures to realize its design and enhance its performance. This paper evaluated four nature-inspired optimization algorithm and introduces a new optimization algorithm, Modified Firefly Algorithm (MFA), which improves performances of the Standard Firefly Algorithm (SFA) in many ways. MFA was used to design both lossless and lossy impedance matching network and yielded results that were comparable to other optimization algorithms in literatures.
