Abstract

The main objective of the current work is to  investigate the behavior of space weather parameter as well as geomagnetic activity indices to observe the Geomagnetically Induced Current (GIC). Subsequently, solar wind parameter and geomagnetic activity indices provided an evidence that GIC formed during quiet days. The result revealed that the solar wind parameter  and  geomagnetic activity  indices reflect  the  GIC.  However,  the  solar  wind parameter gave the best representation on GIC.
