Particle swarm optimization (PSO) as a novel computational intelligence technique, has succeeded in many continuous problems. But in discrete or binary version there are still some difficulties. In this paper a novel binary PSO is proposed. This algorithm proposes a new definition for the velocity vector of binary PSO. It will be shown that this algorithm is a better interpretation of continuous PSO into discrete PSO than the older versions. Also a number of benchmark optimization problems are solved using this concept and quite satisfactory results are obtained.
