This chapter proposes an optimization technique of Artificial Neural Network (ANN) controller, of single-input single-output time-varying discrete nonlinear system. A bio-inspired optimization technique, Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO), is proposed to be applied in ANN to avoid any possibilities from local extreme condition. Further, a PSO based neural network controller is also developed to be integrated with the designed system to control a nonlinear systems. The simulation results of an example of nonlinear system demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed approach using Particle Swarm Optimization approach in terms of reduced oscillations compared to classical neural network optimization method. MATLAB was used as simulation tool.
