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.
— Planning for the energy transition requires the ability to optimize energy system development pathways, considering complex interactions and constraints, particularly concerning interactions between sectors and vectors. In this context, Artelys has developed a new method for solving these large-scale mathematical problems.
— The stakes of Artificial Intelligence (AI) have become a strategic issue for companies, regardless of their field of activity or size. As an expert, Artelys provides you with full assistance, from the design stage to the implementation of your first AI solution, by building with and for your team a roadmap tailored to your business.
— 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.
