In this article, some methods are proposed for enhancing the converging velocity of the COA (chaos optimization algorithm) based on using carrier wave two times, which can greatly increase the speed and efficiency of the first carrier wave’s search for the optimal point in implementing the sophisticated searching during the second carrier wave is faster and more accurate. In addition, the concept of using the carrier wave three times is proposed and put into practice to tackle the multi-variables optimization problems, where the searching for the optimal point of the last several variables is frequently worse than the first several ones.
