This paper presents a new methodology for synthesis of broadband matching networks based on Clonal Selection Algorithms (CSA). This metaheuristic uses the hypermutation as only variation operator resulting in a gradual evolving of the network topology. A closed form expression for the transducer power gain (TPG) sensitivity with respect to the component values is employed, in such a way that the effects of the components tolerance on the matching network performance can easily be quantified. The evolvable function proposed is single-objective and eliminates the difficult task of assigning appropriate weights to parameters. The evaluation of the TPG sensitivity enables the designer to identify and remove irrelevant components of the circuit, simplifying it. The efficiency of the methodology is tested in two cases found in the literature: the traditional project of impedance matching for a simple RLC load proposed by Fano [1]; and a real synthesis of impedance matching network for a monopole whip antenna, proposed in [2]. The results are compared with other existing methods.
