Sedimentation Load Analysis Using ANN and GA
Artificial Neural Network (ANN) model is used to predict the suspended sediment load for the survey data collected on daily basis in the river Mahanadi. Genetic algorithm has been used to find the optimal level of process parameters such as water discharge and temperature for a minimum sedimentation load condition. Optimal level of process parameters obtained from the GA has been used in a trained neural network to obtain the sedimentation load condition. A comparative analysis is then made between GA and ANN for achieving minimum sedimentation load with the given process parameters.
