  • Intelligent Biogeography-Based Optimization for discrete variables

    Biogeography-Based Optimization (BBO) is a new bio-inspired and population based optimization algorithm. The convergence of original BBO to the optimum value is slow. Intelligent Biogeography-Based Optimization (IBBO) technique is a hybrid version of BBO with Bacterial Foraging algorithm (BFA). In this paper, authors integrate the bacterial intelligence feature of BFA to decide the valid emigration in migration process of BBO. This increases the ability of BBO to escape from getting trapped in local minima and converges to near- global optimum. This makes faster convergence to the optimum value. To validate the performance of IBBO, experiments have been conducted on unimodal and multimodal benchmark functions of discrete variables. IBBO and BBO are initialized with integer versions of population.

  • Biogeography based optimization: A review

    Biogeography based optimization is a nature oriented concept. It extracts the idea of optimization from the way how species are distributed in various geographical areas. Various habitats are differentiated on the basis of habitat suitability index which determines strength of organisms in particular habitat. So habitat having highest habitat suitability index is known as best habitat. The same concept is used to derive the biogeography based optimization. A solution having the highest habitat suitability index is considered to be best and rest of all candidate solutions are modified according to the best solution. Original BBO has very limitations such as applicability in continuous domain, slow convergence speed etc which have been improved in the later years. This paper represents basic biogeography based optimization and its modified versions which aims at improving the original BBO.

Network reconfiguration is the procedure of changing the topological structure of feeders by altering the open or close status of lines which include sectionalizing and tie lines. Biogeography Based Optimization (BBO) algorithm is proposed to solve the optimal network reconfiguration problem. Simulations are carried out on 33-bus radial distribution systems, in MATLAB Programming Environment.

  • High performance phylogenetic inference

    Phylogenetic analysis is an integral part of many biological research programs. In essence, it is the study of gene genealogy. It is the study of gene mutation and the generational relationships. Phylogenetic analysis is being used in many diverse areas such as human epidemiology, viral transmission, biogeography, and systematics. Researchers are now commonly generating many DNA sequences from many individuals, thus creating very large data sets. However, our ability to analyze the data has not kept pace with data generation, and phylogenetics has now reached a crossroads where we cannot effectively analyze the data we generate. The chief challenge of phylogenetic systematics in the next century will be to develop algorithms and search strategies to effectively analyze large data sets. The crux of the computational problem is that the actual landscape of possible topologies can be extraordinarily difficult to evaluate with large data sets. The parsimony ratchet is actually a family of iterative tree search methods that use a statistical approach to sampling tree islands and ultimately finding the most parsimonious trees for a data set. Each iteration of the parsimony ratchet may occur in parallel as there is no direct dependency between iterations. The authors' implementation of the parallel ratchet is masterworker based. A master process is launched in the DOGMA system which then launches worker tasks on available nodes. Each worker task is simply wrapper code that is used to interact with the newest release version of NONA.

  • Research on reactive power compensation for distribution network based on biogeography-based optimization algorithm

    Distribution network reactive power optimization, which can effectively reduce distribution network wastage, can not only improve voltage distribution network quality, but also realize the distribution network security control. Stable operation provides solid foundation for the electric power enterprise economy. Unlike genetic algorithm that shares the feature information between the chromosomes, the unique migration pattern of BBO algorithm makes the good feature in the habitats broadcast widely among habitats, thus, the optimization process would be accelerated and the reactive power compensation location could be confirmed quickly. And by using BBO algorithm in the example analysis and conducting simulation through PSASP, it proves that biogeography optimization algorithm is quite effective when applied in distribution network reactive power optimization.

  • Feature selection based classification of sentiment analysis using Biogeography optimization algorithm

    Sentiment classification of social media has recently become popular among scientists due to the emergence of product reviews, blogs and social networking sites. A large number of reviews are difficult to evaluate personally. Moreover due to variable nature of reviews it becomes difficult, to compile overall result of reviews, to know which product is better than other. Researchers have already implemented machine learning techniques to analyze sentiment present in the given document. But execution time for these techniques increases due to the increase in feature set of data. Also irrelevant features participate in determining the sentiment of the given document, thereby varying the accuracy of the algorithm. In order to get much better classification, we propose a Biogeography based optimization algorithm to select optimal features set from given data. Then by using Naïve Bayes and Support Vector Machine techniques, we perform sentiment classification of product reviews. The proposed technique can be applied to other classification problems where feature set is large.

  • A modified BBO algorithm and its application for identifying Hammerstein system under heavy-tailed noises

    The Evolutionary algorithm (EA) for researching parameters of nonlinear system is a rapidly growing field of identification. This can owe to the importance of EA for both the theoretical field and the engineering community. However, the identification of the nonlinear system is still a knotty problem, especially when heavy-tailed noises exists. Compared to classical identification methods, EA has more advantages as its fast searching speed and low complexity. In this paper, based on Biogeography Based Optimization (BBO) algorithm which was presented in recent years, a modified BBO (MBBO) is presented to overcome the premature drawback of BBO. A computing method of mutation ratio is added in MBBO to enhance exploration ability. Then, the MBBO algorithm is used for a Hammerstein model with a heavy-tailed perturbation. Experiment results verify that MBBO has much higher accuracy than BBO.

  • Biogeography Based Optimization technique applied to multi-constraints economic load dispatch problems

    This paper presents biogeography-based optimization (BBO) technique for solving constrained economic dispatch problems in power system. Many nonlinear characteristics of generators, like valve point loading, ramp rate limits, prohibited zone, and multiple fuels cost functions are considered. Two Economic Load Dispatch (ELD) problems with different characteristics are applied and compared its solution quality and computation efficiency to genetic algorithm (GA), particle swarm optimization (PSO), and other optimization techniques. The simulation results show that the proposed algorithm outperforms previous optimization methods.

  • Study on the behaviour of BBO over natural terrain features

    In recent years the remote sensing image classification has become a global research area for acquiring the geo-spatial information from satellite data. In this paper we have tried to explore the behavior of Biogeography-Based Optimization (BBO) over different terrain features of a satellite image. The findings of recent studies are showing strong evidence to the fact that various classifiers perform differently when applied to images having different natural terrain features. BBO has a way of sharing information between solutions depending on the migration mechanisms of ecosystem. The motivation of this paper is to use this feature of BBO for finding more accurate results. The approach followed involves making the clusters of different land cover features. The results indicate that highly accurate Homogeneous land-cover features are extracted when BBO is used, instead of other conventional classifiers.
