The optimal location of controllers in wireless networks is an important problem in the process of designing cellular mobile networks. In this paper we present a novel algorithm based on Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) for solving it. Our objective function is determined by the total distance based on finding maximum flow in a transport network using Ford-Fulkerson algorithm satisfies capacity constraints. The experimental results show that our proposed algorithm has achieved much better performance than previous heuristic algorithms.
