Accuracy of short circuit analysis depends on the modeling of transformers and loads. This paper addresses implementation of various transformer and load models in a short-circuit analysis for three-phase unbalanced distribution systems. Detailed transformer models are derived and incorporated into a production grade short circuit program with three different load models. Our studies show that different transformer connections, load models, and loading conditions may have significant impact on post-fault currents and voltages. Some test results on PG&E distribution feeders are presented
