This paper shows the importance of the model order reduction using Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) technique by designing a compensator to obtain the desired specifications for a higher order Pantograph system. The PSO is an evolutionary technique of model order reduction in which an algorithm is developed to choose best solution among many possible groups of solutions, by minimizing the fitness function. In this paper the fitness function chosen is Integral Square Error which is a measure of Performance Index of the compensator of pantograph system.
