This contribution deals with a new algorithm – the Self-Organizing Migrating Algorithm (SOMA). The SOMA algorithm was used for static optimization of a given chemical reactor with 5 inputs and 5 outputs. SOMA was used on this reactor for static optimization because the reactor, which was set by an expert, shows poor performance behaviour. Participation consists of simulation results, which shows how expertly set reactor behaves. Also set of static optimization simulations of given reactor is presented here including results and conclusions.
