Particle Swarm Optimization with velocity control



This paper presents a new Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) technique with velocity control. In the proposed method, we lead the particles from intensification to diversification by adding a random number to the velocity of the particle depending on the distance from global best position (gbest), and thereby the particles can search widely in the search space.
