Abstract

Optimal cost building of water distribution networks is one of the fundamental issues in water management plans. In recent years, high accuracy of meta-heuristic methods has gained attention of researchers. In this research, genetic algorithm and harmony search methods were used for optimal cost design of water distribution network in Jableh, Lattakia governorate.

 The Epanet software is used to design and analyze the water distribution network after converted it to closed, and optimal cost design of the network is done by HSNET and WATERGEMS software for the harmony search and genetic algorithms, respectively. The results showed design costs were decreased 28% and 37% by using the genetic algorithm and harmony search algorithm, respectively. In relation to the calculated cost of the existing network after it's been converted to closed. Furthermore, the Harmony search method was found more optimal than the genetic algorithm.
