Presentation: A short introduction to embedded optimization
Plant Simulation contains an integrated optimizer based on Genetic Algorithms.
We will briefly explain the basics of Genetic Algorithms.
There are two principal connections of simulation and optimization.
First, simulation can be used as evaluator for optimization.
The second connection is less known, namely using optimization as an integrated part of the simulation.
We demonstrate and present both applications in Plant Simulation.
