Water Resources Optimal Allocation Based on Multi-Objective Differential Evolution Algorithm


Article Preview

Differential evolution is a simple and powerful globally optimization new algorithm. It is a population-based, direct search algorithm, and has been successfully applied in various fields. Optimal allocation of water resources is an important part of the planning of water resources. Traditional planning methods prove insufficient for the multi-objective system of water resources. In this paper, multi-objective differential evolution(MODE) algorithm applied to the regional water resources optimal allocation, through definition of economic, social, Eco-environmental three objective function and the constraints, the regional water resources optimal allocation model has been established, and then multi-objective genetic algorithm is used to solve the model .The model gets different results for optimal allocation water resources of Ningxia in 2030(Guarantee rate of water supply 50% and 75%). The result of example proves that the method is reasonable and feasible in the application of region water resources optimal allocation.
