The Harmony Search (HS) Algorithm is one of the efficient nature-inspired optimization algorithms which exhibits interesting search capability within less computational overhead. However, empirical studies showed that the main problem of this kind of algorithms is the proper setting of the associated parameters. HS associated with a few parameters and to find out the proper combination of the parameter values is time consuming. That's why a parameterless variant has been proposed here, which
