What is it about?

This paper aims at studying meta-heuristic algorithms. One of the common meta-heuristic optimization algorithms is called grey wolf optimization (GWO). The key aim is to enhance the limitations of the wolves’ searching process of attacking gray wolves.

Why is it important?

The development of meta-heuristic algorithms has increased by researchers to use them extensively in the field of business, science and engineering. In this paper, the K-means clustering algorithm is used to enhance the performance of the original GWO; the new algorithm is called K-means clustering gray wolf optimization (KMGWO).


Results prove that KMGWO is superior to GWO. KMGWO is also compared to cat swarm optimization (CSO), whale optimization algorithm-bat algorithm (WOA-BAT), WOA and GWO so KMGWO achieved the first rank in terms of performance. In addition, the KMGWO is used to solve a classical engineering problem and it is superior.
