- A multi-objective differential evolution-chaos shuffled frog leaping algorithm (MODE-CSFLA) is proposed for water resources system optimization to overcome the shortcomings of easily falling into local minima and premature convergence in SFLA. The performance of MODE-CSFLA in solving benchmark problems is compared with that of non-dominated sorting genetic algorithm II (NSGA-II) and multi-objective particle swarm optimization (MOPSO). At last, the proposed MODE-CSFLA is used to optimize the water resources allocation plan of the East Route of the South-to-North Water Transfer Project in the normal, dry, and extremely dry years. The results reveal that MODE-CSFLA performs better than NSGA-II and MOPSO under all conditions. Compared with shuffled frog leaping algorithm (SFLA), MODE-CSFLA can result in a 29.39, 27.47 and 22.55% increase in water supply when the single objective is to minimize the water pumpage; and a 41.01, 39.63 and 30.94% decrease in total pumpage when the single objective is to maximize the water supply in the normal, dry, and extremely dry conditions, respectively. Thus, MODE-CSFLA has the potential to be used for solving complex optimization problems of water resources systems.
