[TCML] mot ballast

Hi All, 
Something has been nagging at the back of my mind for  years:
 If a short on the HV side of a transformer is reflected back to the  primary 
as a short, then how does a mot with a shorted secondary act as a  ballast? 
Is it purely the leakage inductance that makes it not appear as  a dead short? 
Is there a way to calculate this value, or is it just cut and  try?
Matt D.
