## solar: A solar thermal power plant simulator for blackbox optimization benchmarking

This work introduces solar, a collection of ten optimization problem instances for benchmarking blackbox optimization solvers. The instances present different design aspects of a concentrated solar power plant simulated by blackbox numerical models. The type of variables (discrete or continuous), dimensionality, and number and types of constraints (including hidden constraints) differ across instances. Some are deterministic, others are stochastic … Read more
