Answer :

In short circuit test of transformer the low voltage side is short circuited . On high voltage side the voltmeter is connected in parallel and ammeter in series and also a wattmeter is connected to high voltage side (primary winding). Short circuit test is done for determining impedance and losses. In this test iron losses is neglected.
