Purpose – This paper aims to describe colonial competitive algorithm (CCA), a novel socio-politically inspired optimization strategy, and how it is used to solve real world engineering problems by applying it to the problem of designing a multivariable proportional-integral-derivative (PID) controller. Unlike other evolutionary optimization algorithms, CCA is inspired from a socio-political process – the competition among imperialists and colonies. In this paper, CCA is used to tune the… CONTINUE READING
