Maintenance Scheduling by using the Bi-Criterion Algorithm of Preferential Anti-Pheromone

This paper presents the solution for the Thermal Generator Maintenance Scheduling Problem, using a bi-criterion Ant Colony Optimization Algorithm called Preferential Anti-pheromone (PAP). This method allows the “agents” of an ant colony to deposit a small amount of pheromone trail to every path that has been used, to construct the potential solutions, but… CONTINUE READING
