Over the last two decades, many different differential evolution (DE) variants have been developed for solving constrained optimization problems. However, none of them performs consistently when solving different types of problems. To deal with this drawback, multiple search operators are used under a single DE algorithm structure where a higher selection pressure is placed on the best performing operator during the evolutionary process. In this paper, we propose to use the landscape information of the problem in the design of the selection mechanism. The performance of this algorithm with the proposed selection mechanism is analysed by solving 10 real-world constrained optimization problems. The experimental results revealed that the proposed algorithm is capable of producing high quality solutions compared to those of state-of-the-art algorithms.
