An error-based fitness function is designed using the differential form of the SSP-BVPs and its boundary conditions. The optimization of this fitness function is performed by using the computing capabilities of ANNs-PSO-IPA. Four cases of two SSP systems are tested to confirm the performance of the suggested ANNs-PSO-IPA. The correctness of the scheme is observed by using the comparison of the proposed and the exact solutions. The performance indices through different statistical operators are also provided to solve the SSP-BVPs using the proposed ANNs-PSO-IPA. Moreover, the reliability of the scheme is observed by taking hundred independent executions and different statistical performances have been provided for solving the SSP-BVPs to check the convergence, robustness and accuracy.
