GA performance comparison. Comparing the performance of GA-MCS against APM [23] using a single representative run for each model. The best solution in each generation was used to represent the performance of the GA. The numbers under the lines represent the cardinality of MCS corresponding to the objective value plotted. a, b and c represent maximization for efficiency and d, e and f represent maximization for ethanol using the corresponding fitness functions in Table 4. M1, M2 and M3 indicates the associated models. The time axes in c and f is in logarithmic scale. Note that for the same objective with a lesser cMCS cardinality, the fitness will be higher
