This paper, to solve the MINLP, presents an improved algorithm of PSO. The main characteristics of the improved algorithm includes: the introduction of backup-particles and the proposal of particles substitution strategy which improves the learning ability and updating velocity of particles. It proved by the classical values experiments that the improved algorithm possesses the features of accuracy and quick convergence at the same time.
