EIT reconstruction can be solved as an optimization problem through Simulated Annealing (SA), but often at a high computational cost. This paper presents new techniques of EIT reconstruction through SA, including partial evaluation of the objective function, alternate objective functions and multi-objective optimization. Reconstructions of experimental impedance data using the techniques exposed were successfully performed.
