Re: Evolutionary algorithm for a GAMS model

No suggestions (this is my last try)?

Re: Evolutionary algorithm for a GAMS model

Does nobody have a clue if you can use an evolutionary algorithm (or any other metaheuristic) for your GAMS model? I'll be quite thankful If some could share his or her experience or assumptions.

Evolutionary algorithm for a GAMS model

Hi guys,

I just wanted to ask whether it is possible to solve a GAMS model using an evolutionary algorithm? Or is there one solver that GAMS is compatible with which uses a metaheuristic for solving the optimization problem?

I'd appreciate input.

Re: Iterative models/ Dynamic sets

Thanks Fred for your answer, there are still a few things that I do not understand. $eval tSlices ceil(card(tt)/288) why do we need a Compile-Time Variable here? You anyways specify the number of total timeslots. So the number of time slices can be computed based on this. map(tSlice,tt) = (ord(tSlic...

Re: Iterative models/ Dynamic sets

Thanks Fred for your answer, I first of all wanted to try the mapping of the timeslots (without having the nested loop). However I have to admit that I don't the code you posted so I just copied and pasted it in my model (I merely adjusted the number of time slots). The beginning of my model looks l...

Re: Iterative models/ Dynamic sets

Thanks a lot Fred for your answer and help. I really appreciate the tremendous help in this forum :) it help me solve the problem. Now I want to not only run the model for every household for the entire optimization horizon (all t) but I want for every 288 timeslots to run run the optimization for e...

Re: Iterative models/ Dynamic sets

Hi all, I have a similar problem. I want to solve a model interatively. In my model I have two sets: t (for time) and households. Most of my parameters depend on both sets(t,households) and some only on (households) like: ... demand_electrical(t, household) $LOAD demand_electrical volumeOfBufferTank...

Re: Objective with if-condition

Thanks for your answer Fred, now I understand my mistake but I do not know how to fix it. How can the variable x depend on y? I tried SOS1 variable x(t, household,y) heatGenerationForBufferTank; SOS1 variable y(t, household,x) heatGenerationForDHWTank; but it did not work because y and x are not set...

Re: Objective with if-condition

Thanks Fred for your answer, I changed the variables Binary variable x(t, household) heatGenerationForBufferTank; Binary variable y(t, household) heatGenerationForDHWTank; to SOS1 variable x(t, household) heatGenerationForBufferTank; SOS1 variable y(t, household) heatGenerationForDHWTank; and it see...
