We present a novel, Hybrid Aggressive Space Mapping (HASM) optimization algorithm. HASM is a hybrid approach exploiting both the Trust Region Aggressive Space Mapping (TRASM) algorithm and direct optimization. It does not assume that the final space-mapped design is the true optimal design and is robust against severe misalignment between the coarse and the fine models. The algorithm is based on a novel lemma that enables smooth switching from the TRASM optimization to direct optimization and vice versa, The new algorithm has been tested on several microwave filters and transformers.
