The paper revisits the fundamental definitions and explores computational alternatives of equivalent inductances of gapped iron core reactors. Unlike in a transformer, the physical meaning of component inductances of a reactor is subject to uncertainty and open to different interpretations, leading to various equivalent circuits. It is argued that a definition based on flux distribution may not be reliable and calculations based on energy or co-energy are thus preferable.
