VirtualLab Fusion – NEW Optimization Package

With the release of VirtualLab Fusion 2024.1, the Optimization Package has joined the VirtualLab Fusion product family.

  • It contains powerful local and global optimization algorithms to design a system according to your merit functions.
  • The intuitive and user-friendly interface will guide you through the optimization process.
  • Powerful post-processing tools will enable you to understand the development of merit function values during the optimization process.

The New Optimization Package

The new Optimization Package comes with various mathematical optimization algorithms:

  • the Nelder-Mead method (also known as Downhill-Simplex) - a fast and estiablished local optimization algorithm.
  • the differential evolutionary algorithm - a global optimization algorithm, which can be used in combination with the distributed computing technology provided by VirtualLab Fusion.

Familiar Workflow

Using the same user interface, users of VirtualLab Fusions will become easily familiar with the controls for the configuration.

Optimization Process

The new package includes advanced options for defining and specifying merit functions. The merit function are available predefined or can be even specified using a built-in formula editor.

Post Processing

The Optimization Package also supports various post-process options, such as the calculation of pareto-fronts.
