Critical Comparison of Multi-objective Optimization Methods: Genetic Algorithms versus Swarm Intelligence
The paper deals with efficiency comparison of two global evolutionary optimization methods implemented in MATLAB. Attention is turned to an elitist Non-dominated Sorting Genetic Algorithm (NSGA-II) and a novel multi-objective Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO). The performance of optimizers is compared on three different test functions and on a cavity resonator synthesis. The microwave resonator is modeled using the Finite Element Method (FEM). The hit rate and the quality of the Pareto front distribution are classified.
KeywordsMulti-objective optimization, binary genetic algorithm, particle swarm optimization, Pareto front, finite element method.
