In this paper, a family of high-order compact finite difference methods in combination preconditioned methods are used for solution of the Diffusion-Convection equation. We developed numerical methods by replacing the time and space derivatives by compact finite-difference approximations. The system of resulting nonlinear finite difference equations are solved by preconditioned Krylov subspace methods. Numerical results are given to verify the behavior of high-order compact approximations in combination preconditioned methods for stability, convergence. Also, the accuracy and efficiency of the proposed scheme are considered.
