This paper proposes a hybrid Rao-Nelder–Mead (Rao-NM) algorithm for image template matching is proposed. The developed algorithm incorporates the Rao-1 algorithm and NM algorithm serially. Thus, the powerful global search capability of the Rao-1 algorithm and local search capability of NM algorithm is fully exploited. It can quickly and accurately search for the high-quality optimal solution on the basis of ensuring global convergence. The computing time is highly reduced, while the matching accuracy is significantly improved. Four commonly applied optimization problems and three image datasets are employed to assess the performance of the proposed method. Meanwhile, three commonly used algorithms, including generic Rao-1 algorithm, particle swarm optimization (PSO), genetic algorithm (GA), are considered as benchmarking algorithms. The experiment results demonstrate that the proposed method is effective and efficient in solving image matching problems.

This paper presents an innovative method of optimizing energy consumption by a low-capacity adsorption oxygen generator. As a result of the applied optimization, reduction in the energy consumption of oxygen separation by about 40% with a possible increase in the maximum efficiency by about 80% was achieved. The experiments were carried out on a test stand with the use of a commercially available adsorption oxygen generator using the PSA technology. The experimental analysis clearly shows that the adsorption oxygen generators offered for sale are not optimized in terms of energy consumption or capacity. The reduction of the oxygen separation energy consumption was achieved by appropriate adjustment of the device operating parameters for the given adsorption pressure and maintaining an appropriate pressure difference between the adsorption bed and the product tank.

Following up on earlier work which demonstrated an improved numerical stellarator coil design optimization performance by the use of stochastic optimization (Lobsien et al., Nucl. Fusion, vol. 58 (10), 2018, 106013), it is demonstrated here that significant further improvements can be made – lower field errors and improved robustness – for a Wendelstein 7-X test case. This is done by increasing the sample size and applying fully three-dimensional perturbations, but most importantly, by changing the design sequence in which the optimization targets are applied: optimization for field error is conducted first, with coil shape penalties only added to the objective function at a later step in the design process. A robust, feasible coil configuration with a local maximum field error of 3.66 % and an average field error of 0.95 % is achieved here, as compared to a maximum local field error of 6.08 % and average field error of 1.56 % found in our earlier work. These new results are compared to those found without stochastic optimization using the FOCUS and ONSET suites. The relationship between local minima in the optimization space and coil shape penalties is also discussed.

The drawback of several metaheuristic algorithms is the dropped local optimal trap in the solution to complicated problems. The diversity team is one of the promising ways to enhance the exploration of searching solutions in algorithm to avoid the local optimum trap. This paper proposes a diversity-team soccer league competition algorithm (DSLC) based on updating team member strategies for global optimization and its applied optimization of Wireless sensor network (WSN) deployment. The updating team consists of trading, drafting, and combining strategies. The trading strategy considers player transactions between groups after the ending season. The drafting strategy takes advantage of draft principles in real leagues to bring new players to the association. The combining strategy is a hybrid policy of trading and drafting one. Twenty-one benchmark functions of CEC2017 are used to test the performance of the proposed algorithm. The experimental results of the proposed algorithm compared with the other algorithms in the literature show that the proposed algorithm outperforms the competitors in terms of having an excellent ability to achieve global optimization. Moreover, the proposed DSLC algorithm is applied to solve the problem of WSN deployment and achieved excellent results.
