Abstract: Optimization is a highly important area in chemical engineering, particularly for process design that is generally formulated as a mixed and non-linear problem with several competing objectives. A way to tackle the problem is to couple multiobjective optimization based on evolutionary algorithms with a process simulator. This situation may yet lead to prohibitive computational time as the number of objectives increases. In this paper, the potential of multiobjective differential evolution (MODE) is tested with three different stopping criteria. The performance of MODE is compared with the results obtained with a variant of NSGA II. The performance metric is based on the number of evaluations used to get the Pareto front. The results show that the combination of an efficient algorithm and the stopping criterion helps to reduce the optimization time but its choice may affect the results. As far as multiobjective is concerned, it must be emphasized that the final solution is the result of compromise that the decision maker must be aware. (More)
