Particle swarm algorithm (PSO) is the most general of all swarm intelligence algorithms. The task of the algorithm is finding the global optimum in a multidimensional search space. Kennedy and Eberhart developed PSO based on the analogy of swarm of bird and fish school. Some of the most popular applications of PSO are related to power system problems, such as optimal operation, control, and planning.
