The forward kinematic of the 3-RPR parallel manipulator is solved using a hybrid meta-heuristic technique where the simulated annealing algorithm replaces the mutation operator in a genetic algorithm. The results from the hybrid meta-heuristic approach is compared with the standard simulated annealing and genetic algorithm. The results show that the simulated annealing algorithm outperforms genetic algorithm in terms of computation time and overall accuracy of the solution. The hybrid meta-heuristic search algorithm shows better performance than the standard genetic algorithm.

Chandra, Rohitash; Frean, Marcus; Rolland, Luc (2009-12-18)
The forward kinematics of the general Gough platform, namely the 6-6 parallel manipulator is solved using hybrid meta-heuristic techniques in which the simulated annealing algorithm replaces the mutation operator in a genetic algorithm. The results are compared with the standard simulated annealing and genetic algorithm. It shows that the standard simulated annealing algorithm outperforms standard genetic algorithm in terms of computation time and overall accuracy of the solution on this problem. However, t...
A hybrid genetic algorithm for the discrete time-cost trade-off problem
Sönmez, Rifat (2012-10-01)
In this paper we present a hybrid strategy developed using genetic algorithms (GAs), simulated annealing (SA), and quantum simulated annealing techniques (QSA) for the discrete time-cost trade-off problem (DTCTP). In the hybrid algorithm (HA), SA is used to improve hill-climbing ability of GA. In addition to SA, the hybrid strategy includes QSA to achieve enhanced local search capability. The HA and a sole GA have been coded in Visual C++ on a personal computer. Ten benchmark test problems with a range of 1...
Evaluation of crossover techniques in genetic algorithm based optimum structural design
Hasançebi, Oğuzhan (2000-11-01)
Crossover is one of the three basic operators in any genetic algorithm (GA). Several crossover techniques have been proposed and their relative merits are currently under investigation. This paper starts with a brief discussion of the working scheme of the GAs and the crossover techniques commonly used in previous GA applications. Next, these techniques are tested on two truss size optimization problems, and are evaluated with respect to exploration and exploitation aspects of the search process. Finally, t...
Efficient and Accurate Electromagnetic Optimizations Based on Approximate Forms of the Multilevel Fast Multipole Algorithm
Onol, Can; Karaosmanoglu, Bariscan; Ergül, Özgür Salih (2016-01-01)
We present electromagnetic optimizations by heuristic algorithms supported by approximate forms of the multilevel fast multipole algorithm (MLFMA). Optimizations of complex structures, such as antennas, are performed by considering each trial as an electromagnetic problem that can be analyzed via MLFMA and its approximate forms. A dynamic accuracy control is utilized in order to increase the efficiency of optimizations. Specifically, in the proposed scheme, the accuracy is used as a parameter of the optimiz...
Shape Optimizations of Metallic Sheets Using a Multigrid Approach
Altinoklu, Askin; Karaova, Gokhan; Ergül, Özgür Salih (2017-09-27)
We present a novel multigrid approach for the shape optimizations of corrugated metallic sheets by using genetic algorithms (GAs) and the multilevel fast multipole algorithm (MLFMA). The overall mechanism is obtained by an efficient integration of GAs and MLFMA, while the optimizations are improved by applying multiple grids at different layers. We show that the multigrid approach provides more effective optimizations than the conventional no-grid optimizations that employ the discretization nodes directly....
