Particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithm is a global optimization technique that is used to find the optimal solution in multimodal problems. However, one of the limitation of PSO is its slow convergence rate along with a local trapping dilemma in complex multimodal problems. To address this issue, this paper provides an alternative technique known as ACPSO algorithm, which enables to adopt a new simplified velocity update rule to enhance the performance of PSO. As a result, the efficiency of convergence speed and solution accuracy can be maximized. The experimental results show that the ACPSO outperforms most of the compared PSO variants on a diverse set of problems.
