Selection of an optimization scheme for a particular problem is a complicated issue of whole research community. An Attempt is made for developing an algorithm for finding the optimal design parameters of a low cost small transformer with their own limitations. Most of the engineering optimization problems involve nonlinear objective functions that subject to many constraints. Sometimes it is very difficult to solve such problems by conventional optimization techniques and in some cases it may fail to give the global optima and could be trapped in the local minima. Comparatively the non-classical optimization schemes like Simulated Annealing (SA), Genetic Algorithm (GA), and Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) etc. are established as a handier tool for Global Search. In this paper an attempt has been made to find an algorithm to obtain the optimal design parameters for designing a minimal cost of material for a 5KVA, 230/115 volt, single phase, core type, and dry transformer using Simulated Annealing (SA) and validating the results with another acceptable method, called Pattern Search (PA). The aim of the paper is to establish an effective and efficient method, which gives more acceptable and improved solution for Global optima, with less no. of iterations and computation time.
