An improved algorithm for Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) named Elite Particle Swarm Optimization with Mutation (EPSOM) is proposed in this paper. Elite particles and bad particles are distinguished from the swarm after some initial iteration steps. Bad particles are replaced with the same number of elite particles, and a new swarm is generated. To avoid losing diversity of the swarm and to decrease the risk of trapping in local optimum, mutation operation is introduced in evolution process… CONTINUE READING
