Impede nonstationarity is vigorous to study performance of time series data and removes long-term components to expose any regular short-term regularity. So, we find miscellaneous unit root tests for instance Dickey-Fuller test, Augmented Dickey-Fuller plus DF-GLS Tests and identify that almost all unit root tests with the estimated model suffer from sign and boundary problems of the parameters to smooth the progress of the non-stationarity problem. In this paper, we usage Dickey-Fuller test and impose some limits on the parameter. Our proposed optimized DF test based on error sum of square (ESS). Monto Carlo simulation method is used to generate simulated critical values for different sample size. Our proposed optimized DF test gives better result than the ordinary DF test with effectiveness, uniformity and power properties. Also, optimized DF improves the sign and boundary problems through imposing some limit on error sum of squares and capture more nonstationarity of time related data.
