Short summary
This paper concerns the extension and tuning of a genetic algorithm used for the automated design of optimal drinking water distribution networks. Different settings and extensions are tested for their effect on the speed and reproducibility with which the algorithm can produce good results. The fastest combinations are reported. Speed and reproducibility are key conditions for drinking water utilities to include the use of optimization algorithms in the regular design process of mains.
