Volume 9, Issue 1 , May 2024, , Pages 131-147

  Project portfolio selection is a critical challenge for many organizations as they often face budget constraints that limit their ability to support all available projects‎. ‎To address this issue‎, ‎organizations seek to select a feasible subset of projects that maximizes utility‎. ...  Read More

Solving a Class of Nonlinear Optimal Control Problems Using Haar Wavelets and Hybrid GA

Saeed Nezhadhosein‎; Reza Ghanbari; Khatere Ghorbani-Moghadam

Volume 8, Issue 1 , June 2023, , Pages 1-17

  In this paper, we solve a class of nonlinear optimal control problems using a hybrid genetic algorithm (HGA) and a direct method based on the Haar wavelets where the performance index is Bolza-form and the dynamic system is linear‎. ‎First‎, ‎we change the problem by using HWs to a static ...  Read More

Solving Nonlinear Hydraulic Equations of Water Distribution Networks by Using a Trust-Region Method

Mahdi Ahmadnia; Reza Ghanbari; Khatere Ghorbani-Moghadam

Volume 7, Issue 2 , December 2022, , Pages 53-75

  In a water distribution network‎, ‎in order to analyze and determine its parameters such as head and flow rate‎, ‎we have to solve nonlinear hydraulic equations in each component of the network‎. ‎Contrary to most of the water distribution network simulation software‎, ‎solving ...  Read More
