MOBO A NEW SOFTWARE FOR MULTIOBJECTIVE BUILDING PERFORMANCE OPTIMIZATION

 

This tools has been developed through the project "Optimal Multi-Objective Design of Integrated Renewable Energy Systems and Buildings" PI: Ala Hasan (ala.hasan(at)vtt.fi) funded by the Academy of Finland 2010-2015

 

Main features of MOBO

 

  • MOBO is a generic freeware able to handle single and multi-objective optimization problems with continuous and discrete variables and constraint functions
  • MOBO can be coupled to many external (simulation) programs
  • It has a an extendable library of different types of algorithms (evolutionary, deterministic, hybrid, exhaustive and random)
  • It is able to handle multi-modal functions and has automatic constraint handling
  • The input is fed by a GUI for defining the optimization problem
  • The user can write the input by algebraic formulas using standard symbols
  • The output can be viewed by two graphs that show the progress of the optimization
  • Allows parallel simulation
