Phasor particle swarm optimization (PPSO) is a new and primary sample of PSO, based on modeling the particle control parameters with a phase angle (θ), inspired from phasor theory in the mathematics. This phase angle (θ) converts PSO algorithm to a self-adaptive, trigonometric, balanced, and nonparametric meta-heuristic algorithm. The performance of PPSO is tested on real-parameter optimization problems including unimodal and multimodal standard test functions and traditional benchmark functions.
