  • Genetic algorithm-based improved sampling for protein structure
           prediction
    • Authors: Md Tamjidul Hoque, Sumaiya Iqbal
      Pages: 129 - 141
      Abstract: The quest for efficient sampling algorithms continues to be a demanding research topic due to their wide spread applications. Here, we present an extension of genetic algorithm (GA) to incorporate improved sampling capacity. We develop a fast-navigating genetic algorithm (FNGA) using associated-memory (AM)-based crossover operation which gives more trials with best chromosomes subpart and helps to navigate faster. To mitigate the increased similarity within population, the twin removal genetic algorithm or TRGA is applied. The optimally diverge chromosomes generated by TRGA can introduce potential subpart to enhance the performance of FNGA further. Thus, we combine FNGA and TRGA and named the combination, kite genetic algorithm (KGA). The proposed FNGA and KGA are empirically tested with benchmark functions and the results are found promising. We further employ KGA in the conformational search for the fragment-free protein tertiary structure prediction. The results of ab initio protein structure modelling show that the sampling performance of KGA is competitive.

  • E-mail spam classification using S-cuckoo search and support
           vector machine
    • Authors: T. Kumaresan, C. Palanisamy
      Pages: 142 - 156
      Abstract: Today's internet world email spam becoming a major problem to the internet users. The main intention of this paper is to design a technique for email spam classification using modified cuckoo search called as stepsize-cuckoo search (SCS) and support vector machine. Optimised feature set is identified with the use of SCS algorithm. Once the best feature set is identified through SCS, the spam classification is done using the support vector machine. For the effectiveness of classification, we have used three different kernels such as linear, polynomial and quadratic. To evaluate the proposed email spam classification, we have used evaluation metrics such as sensitivity, specificity and accuracy. From the results, it clearly shows that our method has shown higher accuracy than the original cuckoo with SVM for spam base datasets.

  • Biogeography-based optimisation for road recovery problem considering
           value of delay after urban waterlog disaster
    • Authors: Lingpeng Meng, Qi Kang, Chuanfeng Han, Shaolong Hu
      Pages: 157 - 164
      Abstract: An urban waterlog disaster (UWD) is caused by a rainfall when the urban drainage system fails to drain off the water produced by the rainfall. To reduce the influence of the waterlog disaster on society, a road recovery planning approach is developed that performs water volume estimation, and pumps collection, assignment, and transportation after a waterlog disaster. A mixed-integer programming model that considers value of delay to travellers was formulated. A biogeography-based optimisation (BBO) algorithm was presented to solve the problem. A real-world example of waterlog (caused by torrential rain on August 12, 2011, in the Pudong district of Shanghai, China) was presented using numerical analysis. The proposed approach emerges as a decision-making tool to help decision makers evaluate diverse recovery strategies before an UWD occurs, with the aim of optimising trade-off between economic costs and value of delay.

  • Enhanced colliding bodies optimisation-based optimal design of wideband
           digital integrators and differentiators
    • Authors: Shibendu Mahata, Suman Kumar Saha, Rajib Kar, Durbadal Mandal
      Pages: 165 - 181
      Abstract: This paper presents an efficient approach to determine the optimal set of coefficients for the design of wideband infinite impulse response (IIR) digital integrators (DIs) and digital differentiators (DDs) of first, second, third, and fourth order, meeting the accurate magnitude response specification, using a recently proposed evolutionary optimisation algorithm called enhanced colliding bodies optimisation (ECBO). To demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed approach, the results of the ECBO-based designs have been compared with those of eight other nature-inspired metaheuristic optimisation algorithms. Parametric and non-parametric statistical hypothesis tests are conducted to validate the consistency of the performance of the ECBO-based DIs and DDs. Simulation results demonstrate that ECBO-based designs achieve the least absolute magnitude error and demonstrate a competitive group delay response of the designed DIs and DDs of different orders as compared with the designs based on the competing algorithms. The proposed DIs and DDs also outperform those of the design approaches published in literature and achieve the best responses in terms of the maximum absolute magnitude error over a wide frequency range.

      Abstract: In order to improve the frequency stability and control in an interconnected power system including various power generating units, the automatic generation control (AGC) needs to be more robust and efficient. On the other hand, the difficulties in AGC are not only to design a robust controller but it also to optimise its parameters effectively for a robust optimal solution. In this paper, an application of a new efficient optimisation method called the differential search algorithm (DSA) was proposed to solve the AGC problem. The proposed approach was applied to reach the proportional-integral-derivative (PID) controller parameters. This latter was used to maintain the frequency at nominal value using the integral time multiplied by absolute error (ITAE) as fitness function. To show the robustness of the proposed strategy, a four area interconnected electrical network was investigated for the simulation. The obtained DSA results were compared to other approaches available in literature. The simulation results of this research show that DSA strategy is able to solve AGC problem and achieve less frequency and tie-line power flow deviations than those determined by other methods used in this paper.
