Abstract: The reactance of the transformer windings is an important component for the design which has a direct effect on its operation. Reactance is used for computation of not only the transformer equivalent circuit parameters and also for designing its protection. The Roth’s method, Rabin method, method of images, and classical methods are the traditional methods used for its calculation. The finite element method can be used for the calculation of transformer reactance. In the industrial revolution 4.0 all manufactured transformers would be evaluated through their 3D design and performance analyzed by computational methods. In this work the reactance calculated by the finite element method has been compared to that calculated by the classical method. The calculated values of energy stored in the windings and other parts and the reactance can be found.
