ABSTRACT

Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) algorithm inspired from behaviour of bird flocking and fish schooling. It is well-known algorithm which has been used in many areas successfully. However it sometimes suffers from premature convergence. In resent year’s researches have been introduced a various approaches to avoid of this problem. This paper presents the particle swarm optimization algorithm with flexible swarm (PSO-FS). The new algorithm was evaluated on 14 functions often used to benchmark the performance of optimization algorithms. PSO-FS algorithm was compared to some other modifications of PSO. The results show that PSO-FS always performed one of the better results.
