RMSE performance of the models obtained by parameter estimation from artificial data. Boxplots of the performance distributions of the four optimization methods (DASA, PSO, DE, and A717) in terms of the quality of the reconstructed output (RMSE), when considering four different observation scenarios (columns CO, AO, TO, and NPO) and three artificial datasets (rows): a) noise-free, s = 0%; b) noisy data, s = 5%; and c) noisy data, s = 20%. Due to the large differences in the order of magnitude, the RMSE values are plotted on a logarithmic scale.
