Hi

I want to find the optimal solution of 9 unknown ( x(1) - x(9) ) with 9 nonlinear constraints, and subject to the minimization of x(9) so I use fmincon to solve it.

Here is my code for the optimization with fmincon:

% main code

fun = @(x) x(9) ;

nonlcon = @unitdisk50;

lb = [0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0];

ub = [inf inf inf inf inf inf inf inf inf];

x0 = [0.02 0.64 0.95 1.38 1.72 2.12 2.52 2.9 3.1];

A = [];

b = [];

Aeq = [];

beq = [];

x = fmincon(fun,x0,[],[],[],[],lb,ub,nonlcon)

and the code of function

function [c,ceq] =unitdisk50(x)

J = 2;

w1 = 2.3026;

sigma1 = -0.3364;

w2 = 6.5298;

sigma2 = -3.4136;

c = [x(1)-x(2)+x(3)-x(4)+x(5)-x(6)+x(7)-x(8)+x(9)];

ceq = [1-exp(-sigma1*x(1))*cos(w1*x(1)) + exp(-sigma1*x(2))*cos(w1*x(2)) - exp(-sigma1*x(3))*cos(w1*x(3)) + exp(-sigma1*x(4))*cos(w1*x(4)) - exp(-sigma1*x(5))*cos(w1*x(5)) + exp(-sigma1*x(6))*cos(w1*x(6)) - exp(-sigma1*x(7))*cos(w1*x(7)) + exp(-sigma1*x(8))*cos(w1*x(8)) - exp(-sigma1*x(9))*cos(w1*x(9))

J*(x(3)-x(2)+x(1)-x(4)+x(5)-x(6)+x(7)-x(8)+x(9))-1

];

Although it has found the solution

x

0.1333 1.0305 1.4458 1.7052 1.8199 2.2065 2.5552 2.8824 2.9252

but it didn't satisfiy the constraint '' J*(x(3)-x(2)+x(1)-x(4)+x(5)-x(6)+x(7)-x(8)+x(9))-1 '')

and it showed that :

'' Converged to an infeasible point.

fmincon stopped because the size of the current step is less than

the default value of the step size tolerance but constraints are not

satisfied to within the default value of the constraint tolerance. ''

Does anyone know how to solve this problem ? This is the first time I use optimal function.

Thanks.

Ray.

one inequality constraint is: x(1)-x(2)+x(3)-x(4)+x(5)-x(6)+x(7)-x(8)+x(9)<=0 (1)

while one of equality constraint is: J*(x(3)-x(2)+x(1)-x(4)+x(5)-x(6)+x(7)-x(8)+x(9))-1=0

this same as: x(3)-x(2)+x(1)-x(4)+x(5)-x(6)+x(7)-x(8)+x(9)=1/J=1/2=0.5 (2)

note the left sides of (1) and (2) are exact same, so the inequality constraint and equality constraint are contradictory, therefor there is no solution.
