A minimum total number of centrifuges can be taken as an optimization criterion in designing a cascade of centrifuges. The separable power of a centrifuge of given geometry (rotor height and radius) and specified peripheral speed (the highest that materials of construction can withstand) depends upon the internal variables controlling the component drives and upon the operating variables, which are the cut θ, and the throughput, L. To enhance separative power of a gas centrifuges cascade, one needs to optimize all parameters. In this paper, the Real Coded Genetic Algorithm, RCGA, is implemented. As an example of the method, the dependence of separation factor, α to variables cut and throughput is assumed as a typical function. The outcomes of the method are in good agreement with published data.
