Abstract

Numerical problems are usually solved using heuristic algorithms, due to their simplicity and easy understanding. Nevertheless, most of these methods have calibration parameters that do not count with selection premises oriented to obtain the best performance for the algorithm. The present paper introduces an iterative technique that deals with this problem, searching for the calibration parameters that improve the Differential Evolution algorithm. The application of the proposed technique is illustrated on a real leak location problem in a pipeline prototype. The obtained results show the good performance of the methodology proposed for the leak location task, including the mapping of the calibration parameters that ameliorate the searching process.
