Differential search (DS) is a recently developed derivative-free global heuristic optimization algorithm for solving unconstrained optimization problems. In this paper, by applying the idea of exact penalty function approach, a DS algorithm, where an S-type dynamical penalty factor is introduced so as to achieve a better balance between exploration and exploitation, is developed for constrained global optimization problems. To illustrate the applicability and effectiveness of the proposed approach, a comparison study is carried out by applying the proposed algorithm and other widely used evolutionary methods on 24 benchmark problems. The results obtained clearly indicate that the proposed method is more effective and efficient over the other widely used evolutionary methods for most these benchmark problems.
