In the lightning monitoring systems, positioning calculation is directly related to the results of the detection accuracy. In this paper, the concept of the particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithm for lightning location estimation was brought in. The PSO overcome the disadvantages of iterative method, such as the difficulty in finding initial and going to diverge. The numerical simulation results show that: the algorithm can obtained lightning point steadily and accurately, and converge
