Quantum-behaved particle swarm optimisation (QPSO) algorithm is a global convergence guaranteed algorithms, which outperforms original PSO in search ability but has fewer parameters to control. This paper describes two selection mechanisms into QPSO to improve the search ability of QPSO. One is the QPSO with tournament selection (QPSO-TS) and the other is the QPSO with roulette-wheel selection (QPSO-RS). While the centre of position distribution of each particle in QPSO is determined by global best position and personal best position, in the QPSO with selection operation, the global best position is substituted by a candidate solution through selection. The QPSO with selection operation also maintains the mean best position of the swarm as in the previous QPSO to make the swarm more efficient in global search. The experiment results on benchmark functions show that both QPSO-RS and QPSO-TS have better performance and stronger global search ability than QPSO and standard PSO.
