Abstract The present study proposes a method for modeling a SONAR transducer with dual resonance. The Butterworth van-Dyke (BVD) model, a conventional SONAR transducer modeling method, can model only one resonance point. Hence, to address its disadvantage and to model the dual resonance, a dual resonance BVD model consisting of two serial BVD models is proposed. The two BVD models are connected in a series, and each simulate resonance at low frequency and high frequency, which allows the modeling of two resonance points. Eight elements compose the equivalent circuit by connecting the BVD models in a series, which is twice as great as that of the existing BVD model. The element value of the dual resonance BVD model is extracted by using the particle swarm optimization method. Analysis was also performed to identify the effects of changes in the value of elements that compose the equivalent circuit on the impedance characteristics of the equivalent circuit through simulation in which element values varied.
