© 2022 Mustafa Tunay and Rahib Abiyev.This paper proposes a stochastic search algorithm called improved hypercube optimisation search (HOS+) to find a better solution for optimisation problems. This algorithm is an improvement of the hypercube optimisation algorithm that includes initialization, displacement-shrink and searching area modules. The proposed algorithm has a new random parameters (RP) module that uses two control parameters in order to prevent premature convergence and slow finishing and improve the search accuracy considerable. Many optimisation problems can sometimes cause getting stuck into an interior local optimal solution. HOS+ algorithm that uses a random module can solve this problem and find the global optimal solution. A set of experiments were done in order to test the performance of the algorithm. At first, the performance of the proposed algorithm is tested using low and high dimensional benchmark functions. The simulation results indicated good convergence and much better performance at the lowest of iterations. The HOS+ algorithm is compared with other meta heuristic algorithms using the same benchmark functions on different dimensions. The comparative results indicated the superiority of the HOS+ algorithm in terms of obtaining the best optimal value and accelerating convergence solutions.
