Is there any empirical formula for calculation of the size of a single phase power transformer

Just for design purpose!

I was talking about the dimensions of the transformer!

You just need to estimate how much power you will need to supply by adding up each load connected to the transformer. I would then use a 70% load factor (i.e. required size = estimated load / 0.7).

Sorry, assumed you were talking about capacity. When I need physical dimensions I tend to look up on a manufacturers website or in their catalogue. I'm not sure there is an empirical formulae. Hopefully someone into transformer design may see the question and give a better answer.
