Abstract This paper presents the mathematical model of a single-phase multi-winding core type transformer taking into account magnetic hysteresis phenomenon based on the feedback Preisach model (FPM). The set of loop differential equations was developed for a K -th winding transformer model where the flux linkages of each winding includes flux Φ common to all windings as a function of magneto motive force Θ of all windings. The first purpose of this paper is to implement a hysteresis nonlinearity involved in the Φ(Θ) function which also accounts residual magnetic flux. The second purpose of this paper is experimental validation of the developed transformer model in a capacitor discharge test and several different values of residual magnetic flux.
