Optimization Issues: Design points not as expected
I am trying to run an Optimization problem but I am having a hard time interpreting the results (this is the first time I run Optimization in ANSYS).
You can see attached the pictures of my setup. I am running a Direct Optimization with the MOGA Method. I choose this method because according to the ANSYS documentation I was reading, it is suitable to solve multiple Objectives (like in my case).
My questions are:
1) See picture below. When I initially setup the optimization, I choose 100 Initial Samples. Why does it give me 1050 as the Estimated Number of Design Points? What are the factors that contributed to produce so many Design Points? I was expecting to receive exactly 100 Design Points (corresponding to the number of initial samples, in my case 100).
