I currently have this,

Primary inductance on an AC transformer will determine the magnetizing current on the unit. Usually inductance is relatively high so the magnetizing current can be as equally low. This inductance can be seen as part of the magnetizing current; however, it will not be seen by load currents. This is due to the flux caused by the primary current which is cancelled out by the secondary current. Secondary inductance is the same as primary, but it is just mirrored and is not its own inductance.

Can someone help elaborate on this please. I also have afew key words that might help : Voltage, input and output sinewave, power, ratios and faraday's law.

@Lucien Nunes

It’s a long time ago Since I had to remember if I need my left or right hand rule.

Perhaps you could check if he is on the right track.
It is looking familiar to me but grey matter is struggling to pull this info out of the recycling bin!
