Re: [EnergyPlus_Support] Re: Can GenOpt 3.1 be coupled to EnergyPLUS 7.2?

The reason Ivan mentioned jE+ is that they also have an optimization tool called jE+ EA. It is an evolutionary algorithm that is at the forefront of optimization and is not currently available in Genopt.  After some reading into the many algorithms available in Genopt and comparing them to EA I found that the optimization approach used by EA seems to make most since. 

To answer your original question- to run Genopt for E+ v7.2 you have to update all of your paths.

Hi Ivan,

thank you for the reply. I must say that only few days ago, I downloaded jEplus (saw it in some article, probably yours) and tried to do some simple examples, just to take a grip on it. I must say that it looks excellent. I saw that you have version coupled with GA, and I will try to work some example later. I posted this message because I would like to learn GenOPT for my ongoing research.

Looking forward for hearing you again (probably through jEplus support website).
