For an transformer of 500W
Copper Loss = Ip2Rp + Is2Rs
P = VI I = P/V
For the primary:
500/230 = 2.27 Amps
For the secondary:
500/24 = 20.83 Amps
Copper loss for primary:
2.272 x 0.05 = 0.258 W
Copper loss for secondary: ...more

Assuming 500 Watts is the transformer`s rated input power.
Set the sum of the powers in the primary equal to 500 Watts and solve for the primary current.
(primary wire resistance loss) + (Vp x Ip) + (core loss) = 500W
.05 (Ip squared) + (230V x Ip) + .07 Watts = 500 Watts
.05 (Ip squared) + (230 Ip) - 499.93 = 0
Ip = 2.173 Amps

Is = (2.173A) X (230V / 24V) = 20.821 Amps

Output power of secondary = (secondary current) X [(secondary Voltage) - (Voltage drop across the resistance of the wire in the secondary)] ...more

There is a formula for that

Efficiency = (Output/Input)*100
output=(x)(KVA * Power Factor)
input=(x)(KVA * Power Factor)+(X)^2 copperlosses+core losses

the volue of x depend on load
