Metaheuristics approaches to solve combinatorial optimization problems in distribution power systems. An application to Phase Balancing in low voltage three-phase networks.
Metaheuristics algorithms are widely recognized as one of most practical approaches for combinatorial optimization problems. One the most interesting areas of application are the power systems. In particular, Distribution ...
Metaheuristic optimization algorithms for the optimal coordination of plug-in electric vehicle charging in distribution systems with distributed generation
This paper proposes three metaheuristic optimization techniques to solve the plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) charging coordination problem in electrical distribution systems (EDSs). Optimization algorithms based on tabu ...
Comparing meta-heuristic approaches for parallel machine scheduling problems
(Taylor & Francis LtdAbingdonInglaterra, 2002)
(Sociedade Brasileira de Pesquisa Operacional, 2013-04-01)
This paper presents the Clustering Search (CS) as a new hybrid metaheuristic, which works in conjunction with other metaheuristics, managing the implementation of local search algorithms for optimization problems. Usually ...
Quaternionic flower pollination algorithm
Metaheuristic-based optimization techniques offer an elegant and easy-to-follow framework to optimize different types of problems, ranging from aerodynamics to machine learning. Though such techniques are suitable for ...
An iterated sample construction with path relinking method: Application to switch allocation in electrical distribution networks
We present a metaheuristic approach which combines constructive heuristics and local searches based on sampling with path relinking. Its effectiveness is demonstrated by an application to the problem of allocating switches ...
Handling dropout probability estimation in convolution neural networks using meta-heuristics
Deep learning-based approaches have been paramount in recent years, mainly due to their outstanding results in several application domains, ranging from face and object recognition to handwritten digit identification. ...
