Multi-objective evolutionary algorithms (MOEAs) are used to solve the optimisation problems with more than one objective to be optimised simultaneously having conflict among each other. Due to the limitations of traditional deterministic algorithms to handle complex and nonlinear search space, several EAs are developed in the recent past. The multi-objective differential evolution (MODE) algorithm is already tested and found to be a reliable algorithm due to their ability to handle non-linear problems efficiently. Though MODE is accurate in terms of converging to the global Pareto front, traditional method has their advantage in terms of speed. We combined these two algorithms and developed hybrid strategy of MODE thus, achieving both accuracy and speed. Hybrid MODE (H-MODE) algorithm is applied on multi-objective optimisation of industrial wiped film polyethylene terephthalate reactor. The results of the present study are compared with those obtained using MODE algorithm. Smooth and well diverse Pareto optimal front is observed with a much faster speed using H-MODE.
