This paper focuses on solving large size optimization problems using GPGPU. Evolutionary Algorithms for solving these optimization problems suffer from the curse of dimensionality, which implies that their performance deteriorates as quickly as the dimensionality of the search space increases. This difficulty makes very challenging the performance studies(More)
Artificial Bee Colony (ABC) algorithm is an optimisation algorithm based on the intelligent behaviour of honey bee swarm. In this work, ABC algorithm is used to optimise the equilibrium of confined plasma in a nuclear fusion device. Plasma physics research for fusion still presents open problems that need a large computing capacity to be solved. This(More)
In this work we present a Grid implementation of a FPGA optimization tool. The application is based on a Distributed Genetic Algorithm (DGA). It solves the placement and routing problem into the FPGA design cycle. The Grid infrastructure is based both on gLite middleware and GridWay metascheduler. The DGA 's different islands are sent to the Working Nodes(More)
Fusion energy is the next generation of energy. Plasma confinement is part of the program to develop fusion energy, so many investigations have been performed on it. Grid computing is currently focused on scientific problems like fusion energy or climate. Using grid computing many of these problems, with high computational costs, can be simulated and(More)
Fusion energy is the next generation of energy. The devices that scientists are using to carry out their researches need more energy than they produce, because many problems are presented in fusion devices. In magnetic confinement devices, one of these problems is the transport of particles in the confined plasma. Some modeling tools can be used to improve(More)
Nuclear fusion is the next generation of energy, but many problems are still present in current nuclear fusion devices. Some of these problems can be solved by means of modeling tools. These tools usually require a large time to finish their computations and they also use a large number of parameters to represent the behaviour of nuclear fusion devices.(More)
