Abstract

This work articulates a new and modified particle swarm optimization algorithm termed in short as MPSO for both constrained and unconstrained nonlinear optimization problems. To illustrate its wide applicability in complex reliability optimization problems, the proposed algorithm is then applied to optimize the reliability of a complex system having mixed series parallel system consisting four parallel units.
