A hybrid artificial neural network-genetic algorithm (ANN-GA) was developed to model, simulate and optimize the catalytic-dielectric barrier discharge plasma reactor. Effects of CH4/CO2 feed ratio, total feed flow rate, discharge voltage and reactor wall temperature on the performance of the reactor was investigated by the ANN-based model simulation. Pareto optimal solutions and the corresponding optimal operating parameter range based on multi-objectives can be suggested for two cases, i.e., simultaneous maximization of CH4 conversion and C2+ selectivity (Case 1), and H2 selectivity and H2/CO ratio (Case 2). It can be concluded that the hybrid catalytic-dielectric barrier discharge plasma reactor is potential for co-generation of synthesis gas and higher hydrocarbons from methane and carbon dioxide and performed better than the conventional fixed-bed reactor with respect to CH4 conversion, C2+ yield and H2 selectivity.
