Swarm intelligence algorithms are based on natural behaviors. Particle swarm optimization (PSO) is a stochastic search and optimization tool. Changes in the PSO parameters, namely the inertia weight and the cognitive and social acceleration constants, affect the performance of the search process. This paper presents a novel method to dynamically change the values of these parameters during the search. Adaptive critic design (ACD) has been applied for dynamically changing the values of the PSO parameters.
