Genetic algorithm takes too much time to solve _ only linear objective and constraints

5 views (last 30 days)
I am working on a problem and i am trying to solve it with genetic algorithm. my objective function is linear. here is my variables and constraints. ı have 2 different variables: x and y. x: 1296, y:36.
I am using problem based approach to solve it.
I did a test run with only some of the constraints and it took 4 hours to iterate 100 times. Now i have all may constraints and each iteration takes approx. 10 mins. for 100 iterations it will be 16 hours. I am not that patient. I aso lo9oked through the community questions and saw that this is common for nonlinear inequalities and such but i do not have any nonlinear. I am working on a capacitated maximal covering location problem(CMCLP).
Is there a way where i can optimize this time?

You say that you have a linear objective function and linear and integer constraints.
In that case, you should not use the genetic algorithm. You should use intlinprog. Really, don't use ga for this problem.
