The optimal control of problem is about finding a control law for a given system such that a certain optimality criterion is achieved. Methods of solving the optimal control problems are divided into direct methods and mediated methods (through other equations). In this paper, the PSO- SVM indirect method is used to solve a class of optimal control problems. In this paper, we try to determine the appropriate algorithm to improve our answers to problems.
