Genetic algorithm plot diagram display

20 views (last 30 days)
Dear all,
I am having a few challenges with regards to GA displaying the plots from the plot function and saving the output results from the output function, while using the m file, however when put in optimization toolbox, the plot are displayed and the output functions are saved respectively. That draws me to the questions, what do I have to do to make the plots displays and save the out put functions using an m file as displayed below.
Kind regards

Hi Walter
In the code above, the GA output function is called using options to save each iteration from the initial to the final as illustrated using GA options. The iterations are saved when the function '@gascroutputdata' is placed in the optimization tool, however, when run in the GA code as stated above, that is not the case as mat file seems to be genetrate as such meaning the the iterations are not saved. The second part is the plot diagram from GA generates, when the optimization toool is used, however, that is not the case when the code above is use.
here is the m code for the output function.
function [state,options,optchanged] = gascroutputdata(options,state,flag)
persistent pin pit pout history r
d = size(state.Population)
switch flag
case 'init' %Save the inital generations iteration results for the %population and the fitness value
disp('Starting the algorithm');
pin = [state.Population,state.Score]; %state.fval,
save scroptiminitiadata.mat;
case 'iter' %Save the subseaquent generations iteration results for the %population and the fitness value
disp('Iterating ...')
% if rem(state.Generation,30) == 0
% ss = size(pit,100000);
pit = [state.Population,state.Score]; %,state.fval
save scroptimiteratdata.mat;
% end
case 'done' %Save the final generations iteration results for the
%population and the fitness value
disp('Performing final task');
save scroptimfinal.mat;

The variable that you create that has the same name as your function, is not used after it is assigned to, so the options you assign there are never used. The options you use are the ones you create about using parallel.

Hi Walter
Please How do I use the options created here in the code, Please can you help by iluustrating it using a part of the code.
Kind regards
