Evolutionary search algorithms are highly efficient tools to solve problems when it is not possible to use an exhaustive search approach. Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) is a bio-inspired technique to perform an intelligent search in continuous and multidimensional solution spaces. Random Number Generators play an important role in PSO. They are commonly used within PSO to solve real complex engineering problems. However, only a few studies have been reported on the impact of Random Number… CONTINUE READING
