This paper presents the performance of developed firefly algorithm which is formed to be used in the problems where decision variables stem from each other. In this regard, the proposed algorithm so-called “DFAORO” is used to a benchmark multi-reservoir problem in continuous domain. So as to examine the results of DFAORO, linear programing (LP) and standard firefly algorithm (SFA) are applied. Final results based on the value of indicate that DFAORO differs from LP by 0.0015 percent. Whereas SFA is about 37 times worse than DFAORO compared to LP. All in all, it can be asserted that DFAORO has proved more robust and effective.
