Optimization of Multi-Quality Water Networks: Can Simple Optimization Heuristics Compete with Nonlinear Solvers?

Mashor Housh
2021 Water  
The problem is formulated as an optimization program that minimizes cost by determining the optimal flow distribution that satisfies the water quantity and quality requirement in the demand nodes.  ...  This results in several local optima, making the process of solving large-scale problems to global optimality very challenging.  ...  For example, when 7 T = the SOH optimal value is 0.32% better than the IPOPT solution.  ...

Simulated Annealing based Wireless Sensor Network Localization

Anushiya A Kannan, Guoqiang Mao, Branka Vucetic
2006 Journal of Computers  
The performance of the proposed algorithm is better than the performance of some well-known schemes such as DVhop method and convex optimization based semi-definite programming method.  ...  Simulated annealing is a technique for combinatorial optimization problems and unlike the gradient search method, it is robust against being trapped into local minima.  ...  But a good method to solve this problem is yet to be found. In order to address this problem, a second round of optimization is performed only on those nodes that are likely to have flip ambiguity.  ...
