[PDF] Nature-Inspired Metaheuristic Algorithms: Second Edition - Semantic ScholarThe search for reliable and efficient global optimization algorithms for solving phase stability and phase equilibrium problems in applied thermodynamics is an ongoing area of research. In this study, we evaluated and compared the reliability and efficiency of eight selected nature-inspired metaheuristic algorithms for solving difficult phase stability and phase equilibrium problems. The results clearly showed that CS is the most reliable of all methods as it successfully solved all thermodynamic problems tested in this study. CS proved to be a promising nature-inspired optimization method to perform applied thermodynamic calculations for process design. Applied thermodynamic calculations in chemical engineering often involve the repeated solution of phase stability and phase equilibrium problems as their solutions are needed during the design of several equipment and separation processes. These problems can be formulated as minimization problems, for which the global minimum represents the required result. These calculations are challenging due to the high nonlinearity of thermodynamic models used to describe the equilibrium phases, the potential nonconvexity of the thermodynamic functions used as objective, and the presence of trivial solutions in the feasible search space.
