STEFAN SANDRU, ION ONUTU STUDIU COMPARATIV AL DIFERITILOR ALTGORITMI DE OPTIMIZARE UTILIZATI PENTRU OBTINEREA AMESTECURILOR MOTORINA-BIODIESEL
The purpose of this paper is to compare two different optimization methods, used in acquiring diesel-biodiesel blends. There were used five types of samples in order to enable the optimization of the final blend: there were chosen two types of hydrofined diesel fuel and there were synthesized three original types of biodiesel. The first optimization method used, dual simplex, is a classical method being used in solving linear programming problems. The second optimization method, the genetic algorithms, falls in the type of artificial intelligence algorithms, being an evolutionary method used when the problem requires searching an optimal solution in a great variety of valid solutions.
