Welcome to the PF.

You need to show some effort on your question. As mentioned, please check out the transformer entry at wikipedia and tell us if that answers your question...

Losses in transformers


So is iron loss and core loss the same thing?

If the core is made of iron, then yes. If the core is made of ferrite, what kind of losses would be involved?

Would that be iron alloy loss? Or a magnetic loss?
