Hey, Im currently reading about transformers and one aspect of the equivalent circuit that I do not understand is why the leakage flux is represented by an inductor? Any help on this would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

Leakage flux is just the portion of the flux generated by the primary winding that does not couple to the secondary winding of a transformer. Without the secondary winding (or if the secondary winding is not connected) a transformer is just an inductor.

I just need a inductor,but the its value is large,so the manufacturer suggest to make a transformer style instead.So the theory told above is right.Thanks!
