Abstract
There are many real-life engineering problems that entail appropriate optimization methods. Although almost all the problems can be modeled into simple forms described by mathematical formula, it is hard to solve all the decisive problems by a single optimization method. Researchers have developed many effective optimization techniques to solve assorted problems. Among these particle swarm optimization (PSO) has played an important role in optimization of complex and high-dimensional problems. However, PSO suffers from premature convergence and low precision. For this purpose, the paper proposed a TPSO which adapts a stochastic process based on t-distribution and a mechanism of reference set. Subsequently simulations tested on 13 classical benchmark functions demonstrated that the TPSO can achieve faster convergence speed and higher accuracy. Finally, the application on the path planning problem of UAV evaluated the efficiency of the proposed algorithm.
