The article presents a particle swarm optimization algorithm (SoPSO) in which a novel effective acceleration coefficient has been proposed. In the presented approach, the proposed acceleration coefficient is a nonlinear function that depends on the performance of the algorithm and is affected by a number of iterations. This strategy allows to more precisely specify the search direction and better control velocity of the algorithm according to which it travels in the search space to discover the best, optimal solution of the considered problem. The presented strategy was examined on the collection of benchmark functions described in the literature. The test results were compared with those achieved by the improved IPSO algorithm and the standard PSO (SPSO).
