  • Population based heuristic search methods such as evolutionary algorithms (EA) and particle swarm optimization (PSO) methods are widely used for solving optimization problems especially when classical techniques are inadequate. A parallel optimization framework using multiple concurrent particle swarms is developed and applied to water distribution problems. Details of the enabling framework that couples the optimization methods with a parallel simulator built around EPANET will be discussed… CONTINUE READING
