Abstract:In this work, we first obtained the similarity measures. The obtained similarity measures were designed based on well-known Hamming distance. It was also considered by analyzing the certainty and uncertainty of the fuzzy membership functions. The proposed similarity measure was applied to the fault detection of primary control surface stuck of Uninhabited Aerial Vehicle (UAV). At post-failure control surface, if the UAV has controllable and trimmable using other control surfaces, the UAV is able to fly or returns to the safety region through reconfiguration of the flight control system. By the calculation of similarity measure, result could be applicable with the real-time parameter estimation method. Furthermore, coefficients monitoring make it possible to monitor the occurrence of control surface fault. The obtained result has the advantage of increasing reliability without adding sensors or any additional cost.

Abstract:In this paper, we propose a novel search interval forecasting (SIF) optimization algorithm for global numerical optimization. In the SIF algorithm, the information accumulated in the previous iteration of the evolution is utilized to forecast area where better optimization value can be located with the highest probability for the next searching operation. Five types of searching strategies are designed to accommodate different situations, which are determined by the history information. A suit of benchmark functions are used to test the SIF algorithm. The simulation results illustrate the good performance of SIF, especially for solving large scale optimization problems.

7. Parameter Estimation of Vertical Two-Layer Soil Model via Brain Storm Optimization Algorithm

Author:Ting, TO;Shi, YH

Source:ADVANCES IN SWARM INTELLIGENCE, ICSI 2016, PT I,2016,Vol.9712

Abstract:A practical soil model is derived mathematically based on the measurement principles of Wenner's method. The Wenner's method is a conventional approach to measuring the apparent soil resistivity. This soil model constitutes two-soil layer with different properties vertically. Thus this model is called the vertical two-layer soil model. The motivation for the mathematical model is to estimate relevant parameters accurately from the data obtained from site measurements. This parameter estimation is in fact a challenging optimization problem. From the plotted graphs, this problem features a continuous but non-smooth landscape with a steep alley. This poses a great challenge to any optimization tool. Two prominent algorithms are applied, namely Gauss-Newton (GN) and Brain Storm Optimization (BSO). Results obtained conclude that the GN is fast but diverges due to bad starting points. On the contrary, the BSO is slow but it never diverges and is more stable.

Author:Lee, S;Ting, TO

Source:ADVANCES IN SWARM INTELLIGENCE, ICSI 2012, PT II,2012,Vol.7332

Abstract:In this paper, data analysis for multiple facts was carried out via fuzzy entropy. The entropy for the fuzzy data with respect to multiple facts was designed through distance measure. The obtained fuzzy entropy was used to analyze the uncertainties with respect to each fact. By summarizing fuzzy entropy, data uncertainty information was limited by the total fact (n) minus one, that is, n-1. The bounded calculation of data uncertainty to each fact was also proven for multiple facts and the decision of fuzzy data to the certain fact among multiple facts has been considered with the help of fuzzy entropy calculation.

Abstract:Particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithm can be viewed as a series of iterative matrix computation and its population diversity can be considered as an observation of the distribution of matrix elements. In this paper, PSO algorithm is first represented in the matrix format, then the PSO normalized population diversities are defined and discussed based on matrix analysis. Based on the analysis of the relationship between pairs of vectors in PSO solution matrix, different population diversities are defined for separable and non-separable problems, respectively. Experiments on benchmark functions are conducted and simulation results illustrate the effectiveness and usefulness of the proposed normalized population diversities.

Abstract:In Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO), setting the inertia weight w is one of the most important topics. The inertia weight was introduced into PSO to balance between its global and local search abilities. In this paper, first, we propose a method to adaptively adjust the inertia weight based on particle's velocity information. Second, we utilize both position and velocity information to adaptively adjust the inertia weight. The proposed methods are then tested on benchmark functions. The simulation results illustrate the effectiveness and efficiency of the proposed algorithm by comparing it with other existing PSOs.

Abstract:The exponential inertia weight is proposed in this work aiming to improve the search quality of Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) algorithm. This idea is based on the adaptive crossover rate used in Differential Evolution (DE) algorithm. The same formula is adopted and applied to inertia weight, w. We further investigate the characteristics of the adaptive w graphically and careful analysis showed that there exists two important parameters in the equation for adaptive w; one acting as the local attractor and the other as the global attractor. The 23 benchmark problems are adopted as test bed in this study; consisting of both high and low dimensional problems. Simulation results showed that the proposed method achieved significant improvement compared to the linearly decreasing method technique that is used widely in literature.

Abstract:The aim of multimodal optimization is to locate multiple peaks/optima in a single run and to maintain these found optima until the end of a run. In this paper, brain storm optimization in objective space (BSO-OS) algorithm is utilized to solve multimodal optimization problems. Our goal is to measure the performance and effectiveness of BSO-OS algorithm. The experimental tests are conducted on eight benchmark functions. Based on the experimental results, the conclusions could be made that the BSO-OS algorithm performs good on solving multimodal optimization problems. To obtain good performances on multimodal optimization problems, an algorithm needs to balance its global search ability and solutions maintenance ability.
13. On the Performance Metrics of Multiobjective Optimization

Author:Cheng, S;Shi, YH;Qin, QD

Source:ADVANCES IN SWARM INTELLIGENCE, ICSI 2012, PT I,2012,Vol.7331

Abstract:Multiobjective Optimization (MOO) refers to optimization problems that involve two or more objectives. Unlike in the single objective optimization, a set of solutions representing the tradeoff among the different objects rather than an unique optimal solution is sought in MOO. How to measure the goodness of solutions and the performance of algorithms is important in MOO. In this paper, we first review the performance metrics of multiobjective optimization and then classify variants of performance metrics into three categories: set based metrics, reference point based metrics, and the true Pareto front/set based metrics. The properties and drawbacks of different metrics are discussed and analyzed. From the analysis of different metrics, an algorithm's properties can be revealed and more effective algorithms can be designed to solve MOO problems.
