The latest release of Artelys Knitro provides performance improvements on all types of optimization models (from linear and quadratic to general nonlinear models) allowing our customers to solve even larger problems with millions of constraints.
These problems are notably observed in several fields such as portfolio optimization in finance, trajectory optimization for robots or autonomous vehicles, economics or optimal power flow in energy.
This enhancement derives from two major developments:
An average performance improvement of 20% for large scale nonlinear models while using the default Interior/Direct algorithm. This improvement builds on the updates provided with Artelys Knitro 12.2 which refined internal linear systems for large scale models. These features have further been enhanced in this release, with a focus on numerical stability. An average memory saving of 40% on all types of convex models when using the Interior/Direct algorithm.
Additional features of Artelys Knitro 12.3:
Updated R, Java and C# interfaces. High speedups can be expected on all models with linear and quadratic structures as they are now processed through a dedicated API. New C and Python single call functions to solve LP, QP and QCQP problems similar to functions already available for our Matlab users. Memory savings up to 50% when using the least squares interface. New diving heuristics to complement the feasibility pump heuristic for Mixed Integer Nonlinear Problems (MINLP). General improvement on nonlinear models when using the BFGS Hessian approximation.
— As part of Le Havre Seine Métropole’s energy master plan, Artelys has worked with metropolitan services to set up a web platform for monitoring territorial energy data.
— CasADi is an open-source tool for general numerical optimization with a strong focus on optimal control and its versions 3.6.2 and higher are now compatible with Artelys Knitro 13.2.
Artelys participation to studies assessing potential contribution of African H2 to EU decarbonization objectives
— As part of the Clean Hydrogen Partnership funding programme, Artelys will participate in the JUST-GREEN AFRH2ICA project along with ten other African and European partners ready to share their know-how on hydrogen economics and technologies.
Artelys demonstrated how to perform cost-benefit analysis of new transmission assets in a smart grid during a webinar hosted by the Linux Foundation Energy and the Global Power System Transformation Consortium showing the strength of the prominent open-source grid computation tool PowSyBl-Metrix.
