• No. of objectives • No. of decision variables • No. of inequality constraints • No. of equality constraints • No. of samples for parametric RHS • Min/Max specification for each objective
The next stage in the MOP setup is to import the Aspen blocks automatically created by the tool in the current directory. The final stage involves completing the minimal user additions required and running the simulation.The output file contains the values of the decision variables and objectives for each run. The tool was developed using Visual Basic 6.0 and FORTRAN. A case study of a advanced power system multi-objective optimization illustrates this capability.
