Optimization of Complex Lighting Systems in Interiors with the Use of Genetic Algorithm and Elements of Paralleling of the Computation Process
The paper presents the application of a genetic algorithm to optimization of the costs related to complex lighting systems. A form of objective function, a group of constraints, and a method of their implementing into the computation algorithm are proposed. For purposes of analysis of the electromagnetic field in visible range the Boundary Elements Method is used. Some elements of the computation algorithm are proposed that may be organized in parallel, as well as a method of communication between the computer issuing an order for the computation process and the cluster-supervising computer. Example optimization calculation is carried out and discussed.
