    Dynamic Allocation of Manufacturing Tasks and Resources in Shared Manufacturing

    Caiyun Liu, Peng Liu*

    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.36, No.3, pp. 3221-3242, 2023, DOI:10.32604/iasc.2023.035114

    Abstract Shared manufacturing is recognized as a new point-to-point manufacturing mode in the digital era. Shared manufacturing is referred to as a new manufacturing mode to realize the dynamic allocation of manufacturing tasks and resources. Compared with the traditional mode, shared manufacturing offers more abundant manufacturing resources and flexible configuration options. This paper proposes a model based on the description of the dynamic allocation of tasks and resources in the shared manufacturing environment, and the characteristics of shared manufacturing resource allocation. The execution of manufacturing tasks, in which candidate manufacturing resources enter or exit at various time nodes, enables the dynamic… More >

    Lei Xing1, Yakui Liu2,3,*

    Energy Engineering, Vol.120, No.4, pp. 1023-1043, 2023, DOI:10.32604/ee.2023.025335

    Abstract The optimal allocation of integrated energy system capacity based on the heuristic algorithms can reduce economic costs and achieve maximum consumption of renewable energy, which has attracted many attentions. However, the optimization results of heuristic algorithms are usually influenced by the choice of hyperparameters. To solve the above problem, the particle swarm algorithm is introduced to find the optimal hyperparameters of the heuristic algorithms. Firstly, an integrated energy system consisting of the photovoltaic, wind turbine, electrolysis cell, hydrogen storage tank, and energy storage is established. Meanwhile, the minimum economic cost, the maximum wind and PV power consumption rate, and the… More >

    P. Anitha1, K. Karthik Kumar2,*, M. Ravindran2, A. Saravanaselvan2

    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.34, No.2, pp. 1377-1397, 2022, DOI:10.32604/iasc.2022.025396

    Abstract In this paper, efficient charging of electric vehicle battery from a considered renewable solar photovoltaic source with the help of a modified Z source with efficient boosting topology. Adapting this Z-source converter to act as a voltage gainer with a boosting function allows a solar Photovoltaic (PV) input voltage of 25VDC (Volts Direct Current) to be increased to a designed output voltage of 75VDC at a low duty ratio, resulting in minimal switching loss. The closed-loop steady-state and transient parameters at the output were analyzed and compared using modern evolutionary algorithms. The power range upheld throughout the circuit is around… More >

    On NSGA-II and NSGA-III in Portfolio Management

    Mahmoud Awad1, Mohamed Abouhawwash1,2,*, H. N. Agiza1

    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.32, No.3, pp. 1893-1904, 2022, DOI:10.32604/iasc.2022.023510

    Abstract To solve single and multi-objective optimization problems, evolutionary algorithms have been created. We use the non-dominated sorting genetic algorithm (NSGA-II) to find the Pareto front in a two-objective portfolio query, and its extended variant NSGA-III to find the Pareto front in a three-objective portfolio problem, in this article. Furthermore, in both portfolio problems, we quantify the Karush-Kuhn-Tucker Proximity Measure (KKTPM) for each generation to determine how far we are from the effective front and to provide knowledge about the Pareto optimal solution. In the portfolio problem, looking for the optimal set of stock or assets that maximizes the mean return… More >

    N. Ganesh1, Uvaraja Ragavendran2, Kanak Kalita3,*, Paras Jain4, Xiao-Zhi Gao5

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.129, No.2, pp. 443-464, 2021, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2021.014960

    Abstract Optimizing the performance of composite structures is a real-world application with significant benefits. In this paper, a high-fidelity finite element method (FEM) is combined with the iterative improvement capability of metaheuristic optimization algorithms to obtain optimized composite plates. The FEM module comprises of ninenode isoparametric plate bending element in conjunction with the first-order shear deformation theory (FSDT). A recently proposed memetic version of particle swarm optimization called RPSOLC is modified in the current research to carry out multi-objective Pareto optimization. The performance of the MO-RPSOLC is found to be comparable with the NSGA-III. This work successfully highlights the use of… More >

    Kalaipriyan Thirugnansambandam1, Debnath Bhattacharyya2, Jaroslav Frnda3, Dinesh Kumar Anguraj2, Jan Nedoma4,*

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.69, No.3, pp. 3629-3644, 2021, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2021.018939

    Abstract In Wireless Sensor Network (WSN), coverage and connectivity are the vital challenges in the target-based region. The linear objective is to find the positions to cover the complete target nodes and connectivity between each sensor for data forwarding towards the base station given a grid with target points and a potential sensor placement position. In this paper, a multiobjective problem on target-based WSN (t-WSN) is derived, which minimizes the number of deployed nodes, and maximizes the cost of coverage and sensing range. An Evolutionary-based Non-Dominated Sorting Genetic Algorithm-II (NSGA-II) is incorporated to tackle this multiobjective problem efficiently. Multiobjective problems are… More >

    Hybrid Metamodel—NSGA-III—EDAS Based Optimal Design of Thin Film Coatings

    Kamlendra Vikram1, Uvaraja Ragavendran2, Kanak Kalita1,*, Ranjan Kumar Ghadai3, Xiao-Zhi Gao4

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.66, No.2, pp. 1771-1784, 2021, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2020.013946

    Abstract In this work, diamond-like carbon (DLC) thin film coatings are deposited on silicon substrates by using plasma-enhanced chemical vapour deposition (PECVD) technique. By varying the hydrogen (H2) flow rate, CH4−Argon (Ar) flow rate and deposition temperature (Td) as per a Box-Behnken experimental design (BBD), 15 DLC deposition experiments are carried out. The Young’s modulus (E) and the coefficient of friction (COF) for the DLCs are measured. By using a second-order polynomial regression approach, two metamodels are built for E and COF, that establish them as functions of H2 flow rate, CH4-Ar flow rate and Td. A non-dominated sorting genetic algorithm… More >

    Abstract In order to address typical problems due to the huge demand of oil for consumption in traditional internal combustion engines, a new more efficient combustion mode is proposed and studied in the framework of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). Moreover, a Non-dominated Sorting Genetic Algorithm (NSGA-II) is applied to optimize the related parameters, namely, the engine methanol ratio, the fuel injection time, the initial temperature, the Exhaust Gas Re-Circulation (EGR) rate, and the initial pressure. The so-called Conventional Diesel Combustion (CDC), Homogeneous Charge Compression Ignition (HCCI) and the Reactivity Controlled Compression Ignition (RCCI) combustion modes are compared.

    Yanlin Zhao1, 2, *, Jiansha Lu1, Qing Yan1, Lili La1, Lili Xu1

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.62, No.1, pp. 355-364, 2020, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2020.06396

    Abstract With the rapid development of the individualized demand market, the demand for manufacturing flexibility has increased over time. As a result, a cell manufacturing system suitable for many varieties and small batches has been produced. With the goal of minimizing the area and logistics handling volume, and considering the arrangement order of facilities and channel constraints, a mathematical model was established, and the problem was solved by improved NSGA-II. After non-dominated sorting, traditional NSGA-II will cross-operate the individuals with the best sorting to generate new individuals. Such a selection strategy is extremely easy to fall into the local optimal solution.… More >

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.88, No.2, pp. 107-140, 2012, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2012.088.107

    Abstract This paper presents the development and the application of a multi-objective optimization framework for the design of two-dimensional multi-element high-lift airfoils. An innovative and efficient optimization algorithm, namely Multi-Objective Tabu Search (MOTS), has been selected as core of the framework. The flow-field around the multi-element configuration is simulated using the commercial computational fluid dynamics (cfd) suite Ansys cfx. Elements shape and deployment settings have been considered as design variables in the optimization of the Garteur A310 airfoil, as presented here. A validation and verification process of the cfd simulation for the Garteur airfoil is performed using available wind tunnel data.… More >
