Differential Evolution to Solve Constrained Optimisation Problems

Rosario Rascuná


Differential Evolution (DE) is a population based stochastic
optimisation algorithm. The aim of this work is to show how DE can be
used to solve constrained optimisation problems. Penalty functions are
not used and a simple feasibility rule allows to choose between
feasible and non-feasible solutions. Also, equality constraints are
dealt with a fixed tolerance and no extra diversity mechanism is
used. This approach was tested with a well known benchmark. The
results obtained outperform other state-of-art techniques in terms of
quality of solutions and computational cost.
