You may see http://203.72.187.247/moodle/file.php/2/Transitional_Expressions.doc.
I put the information there.

In fact, the three you mentioned are all used in comparison. However, there are slight differences among them.

(1) on the other hand: It is used when you are comparing two different facts or two opposite ways of thinking about a situation.

(2)on the contrary: It is used to show that you think or feel the opposite of what has just been stated.

(3)in contrast or by contrast: It is used to show an obvious difference between two or more things.
