Abstract

Grasshopper Optimization algorithm is one of the recent algorithm for optimization. This algorithm is swarm based nature inspired algorithm which mimics and mathematically models the behaviour of grasshopper swarm in nature. The proposed algorithm can be used for solving the engineering optimization problems. The GOA is tested for different benchmark test functions to validate and verify the performance of the algorithm. Results obtained from GOA are compared with actual values (results) of the test functions. The results obtained from algorithm show that the algorithm is able to give the accurate results. The unconstrained and constrained test functions solved by using the Grasshopper optimization Algorithm (GOA) and the results can validate that the algorithm gives the trustable results. Constraints handling technique is used to convert the constrained optimization problem into unconstrained optimization problem, so that the problem can be handled by the Grasshopper Optimization Algorithm (GOA). Static penalty method is used as a constraints handling technique in this paper. The algorithm can also apply for different engineering problems in real life.
