Abstract
In this paper, the contest problem C of 2010 Contemporary Undergraduate Mathematical Contest in Modeling is extended to location optimization problem with multi refineries and multi stations, and the solution procedure is divided into two main phases. In the first stage, the objective function of construction cost is established under the distribution of multi refineries and the unit cost of pipeline, and then the extremal solution is obtained by differential evolution in view of the connection status of some refineries. In the second stage, the exhaust algorithm, which has high complexity, is discussed to provide the exact solution. After that an improved clustering algorithm is proposed to directly define the category of multi refineries. The experimental results show that, the proposed approach can greatly improve computation efficiency without severely sacrificing the accuracy of the results, which especially meets the objective requirement of engineering practice.
