(ICA), Gravitational Search Algorithm (GSA) and others. Since ICA and GSA have advantages over GA and PSO,

in this work, estimation of transformer parameters from its nameplate data was proposed using ICA and GSA.

The results obtained using ICA and GSA was compared to those using GA and PSO to determine the parameters

of transformer equivalent circuit. The results show that GSA performs the best as it gives the lowest average

error compared to PSO, GA and ICA. Therefore, the proposed technique using GSA and ICA can give a better

accuracy than PSO and GA in estimating the parameters of power transformers. The proposed method can also

be applied to estimate parameters of three-phase transformers from their nameplate data without disconnecting

them from the grid for testing.
