A small-scale office grid computing system for electromagnetic design optimization is presented. This system is intended to collect unused computational power and to utilize up to 90% of computer resources in the office. The scale of the proposed system is set to connect up to 100 computational resources, which is typical in an office environment. TCP/IP and Winsock programming techniques are used to construct the networking between the job control manager and computational workers. Based on the proposed computing system, a multi-band printed monopole antenna design is demonstrated. The numerical electromagnetic technique used to solve the example is the FDTD method and the optimization is based on genetic algorithms.
