How the transformer reactive losses (in kVAr) is been calculated?

Thanks !!

If I remember right it's KVA*sin(φ) where φ = acos(PF).

If we neglect the resistance and consider Z=X then

Q=usc*S^2/Sn*(Vrat/V)^2 where

Q[MVAR] usc=usc%/100 =transformer short-circuit voltage

S actual apparent power [MVA] Sn=rated power[MVA] Vrat =primary rated voltage[kV] V=actual supply voltage [kV]

I usually do not think about it and just use automatic caculator from website to get the result of KVA and KW.
