I'm working on WSO for optimal placement of capacitor. How can you efficiently initialize a population of soldiers (particles) with random positions within feasible bounds in MATLAB?

Use the rand function to generate random numbers within the specified limits for each decision variable.
Example, to create a 50x2 matrix of random capacitor locations between buses 2 and 33
soldier_positions = 2 + (32-2).*rand(50,2);
