Multi-objective optimization (MOO) has emerged recently as a useful technique in the design andplanning of engineering systems because it allows identifying alternatives leading to significant envi-ronmental savings. MOO models typically contain an infinite number of Pareto solutions, from whichdecision-makers should choose the best one according to their preferences. An approach is here pre-sented that identifies and retains for further inspection a reduced set of Pareto solutions showing betteroverall performance. The capabilities of our approach are illustrated through its application to the designof reverse osmosis desalination plants considering simultaneously the unitary production cost and a setof environmental impacts in several damage categories. Our method reduces significantly the number ofPareto points, thereby facilitating the decision-making process in MOO.

Uncovering relationships between environmental metrics in the multi-objective optimization of energy systems: A case study of a thermal solar Rankine reverse osmosis desalination plant Antipova, Ekaterina; Boer, Dieter; Cabeza, Luisa F.; Guillén Gosálbez, Gonzalo; Jiménez Esteller, Laureano (Elsevier, 2013)Multi-objective optimization (MOO) is increasingly being used in a wide variety of applications to identify alternatives that balance several criteria. The energy sector is not an exception to this trend. Unfortunately, ...
