I have the below schematic showing the equivalent circuit of a transformer under open-circuit conditions. Will the transformer behave like a resistor, inductor, or capacitor? And will this behaviour vary depending on the values of the open circuit current, open circuit voltage, etc?
I notice that we have a resistor in series with an inductive reactance, which is then in series with a parallel combination of a resistor (representing core losses), and a magnetising inductive reactance.
So far, I have ruled out the transformer behaving as a capacitor. I am thinking that perhaps the transformer is behaving as an inductor? Although, I do not have a great understanding of why this is, it's really just a wild guess.
I appreciate your time and help,
