This research studies the forces on the windings of transformer due to magnetic inrush current. These forces are compared with the corresponding forces due to short-circuit of the windings. Three dimensional finite element computation of three-phase power transformer is carried out based on the maximum permissible magnetic inrush current value where its amplitude is the same as the rated short-circuit current. To verify the computation results, they are compared with those obtained using Ansys software simulation.
