Abstract: Swarm intelligence has been one of the leading techniques used by researchers worldwide for optimisation. In this paper, the fine tuning of the update equations for the swarm are done based on linkage of particle motion with a electromagnetic field and also under the influence of strategic delays. The motion of a particle in a search space is confined to free space in general, however if restricted the solution under the envelope of a magnetic field, the algorithm better converges within a electromagnetic field. Simulation studies have been performed on the triple inverted pendulum case study which showed that stability was achieved with ease when compared to classical methods of control.

Keywords: particle swarm; magnetic fields; time delay; efficiency; triple inverted pendulum.
