In this study, a comparison among three semi-analytical numerical integration algorithms for solving stiff ODE systems is presented. The algorithms are based on Differential Transform Method (DTM) which are Multiple-Step DTM (MsDTM), Enhanced MsDTM (E-MsDTM) and MsDTM with Padé approximants (MsDTM-P). These methods can be classified as explicit one step semi-analytical numerical integration methods. The error and stability analysis of each method is presented. New important relationships among
