This paper applies family competition to evolution strategies to solve constrained optimization problems. The family competition of Family Competition Evolution Strategy (FCES) can be viewed as a local competition involving the children generated from the same parent, while the selection is a global competition among all of the members in the population. According to our experimental results, the self-adaptation of strategy parameters with deterministic elitist selection may trap ESs into local optima when they are applied to heavy constrained optimization problems. By controlling strategy parameters with non-self adaptive rule, FCES can reduce the computation time of self-adaptive Gaussian mutation, diminish the complexity of selection from (m+l) to (m+m), and avoid to be premature. Therefore, FCES is capable of obtaining better performance and saving the computation time. In this paper, FCES is compared with other evolutionary algorithms on various benchmark problems and the results indicate that FCES is a powerful optimization technique.
