Application of Whale Optimization Algorithm in Optimal Allocation of Water Resources
College of Water Conservancy and Hydropower, Hebei University of Engineering, 056021, Handan, China.
In order to solve the water crisis, it is important to optimize the allocation of water resources. In this paper, the Whale Optimization Algorithm (WOA) is applied to the optimal allocation of water resources in Xingtai with the goal of maximum economic benefit and minimum total water shortage. The results show that the total water demand of different water users in each district is 26.94×108m3, the total allocated water is 19.83×108m3, the total water shortage is 7.11×108m3, and the water shortage rate was 26.39%. The lack of water is mainly concentrated in the primary industry. The result of the solution reflects the principle of water supply order and water use equity, which is in line with the actual development and utilization of water resources in the study area. It also verifies the feasibility of the whale optimization algorithm, such as less parameter adjustment, faster convergence, and better global optimization ability when solving water resources optimization problems.
