Optimization with Genetic Algorithm – A MATLAB Tutorial for beginners

In this tutorial, I will show you how to optimize a single objective function using Genetic Algorithm. We use MATLAB and show the whole process in a very easy and understandable step-by-step process.

For a tutorial on Constrained Optimization with Genetic Algorithm see this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=esGZtl3gIlY&feature=youtu.be


Bita Hallajian says:

I want to write a Genetic Algorithm in Matlab to find the maximum value of f(x)=15x-x^2 where parameter x varies between 0 and 15. and x takes only integer values. and besides, i want to find that x which f(x) has the maximum value.
set up problem variables are:
search space=2^4=16
initial population: N=6
number of generation=20
The number of generation is the termination criterion for GA.
I use one gene for crossover and mutation.
i wrote these lines now :
for i=1:6

I will be very grateful for your helpful suggestions and advice.

Hi, is there any on swarm algorithm or is this the same? Ps, not very familiar with this but needed for assignment

Yeoh Shen Horng says:

hi, is there a way to put make sure all the components in independent variables vector are integer?

Farzaneh Bagheri says:

Nice explanation, But the fval should be around 0.04 not 2.43. Do you know why?

Alvin Palanca says:

can this equation be optimized in Genetic algorithm in mathlab — 1.39-0.003056a-0.0064b+0.1061c

Sai Krishnakanth says:

does the same code works in 2011


Thank you for this effort. Simple and great.
If you don’t mind I need to ask you some questions, would you please send me your email.

Hi I’m currently struggling with an optimization problem in matlab. I am trying to optimize photovoltaic parameters using genetic algorithms but I keep getting errors or crazy outputs. HELP!

Abdul Conteh says:

can you demonstrate example on thermal unit commitment

Dear ,
your video is informative thanks for us you are giving your precise time. i have a question could you guide me how to use GA code in matlab simulink PI based three phase VSI ?
