Ant Colony Optimization for Multi-Purpose Reservoir Operation

  title={Ant Colony Optimization for Multi-Purpose Reservoir Operation},
  author={D. Nagesh Kumar and M. Janga Reddy},
In this paper a metaheuristic technique called Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) is proposed to derive operating policies for a multi-purpose reservoir system. Most of the real world problems often involve non-linear optimization in their solution with high dimensionality and large number of equality and inequality constraints. Often the conventional techniques fail to yield global optimal solutions. The recently proposed evolutionary algorithms are also facing problems, while solving large-scale… CONTINUE READING
