I would like to know, why is there much lesser noise in the voltage waveform of open-circuit test compared to short circuit test?
Why in a practical transformer short circuit test primary voltage is not zero?
Hope someone could let me know.

the PMOS will only handle 75A if it has a certain size heatsink and/or defined cooling method (see datasheet). for short-circuit you should use hardware to detect this through desaturation detection and hardware shut down. this method can achieve shutdown in 5uS which is essential for large power converters.

The current limiting action will be around 2.5..3A. When current limiting takes place, the mosfet carries full voltage, so the dissipation is in the several 100 W range.
You are very likely exceeding the Safe Operation Area and the mosfet dies because of thermal runaway due to the positive temperature coefficient in Id versus Vgs when in n

You will do contact damage on opening, not closing, the
switch. A snubber network may limit the voltage rise on
opening, to below arc voltage and minimize that.

If you only need primary to secondary turn ratio, this is quite easy. You only need to supply any ac voltage on the primary (be careful not to saturate the core) and measure the secondary voltage.

I think your mean is that you want to test your IGBT ( is intact or not?). if yes, your answer is simple! if you give +15 volts between gate to emitter of your IGBT , Its collector , emitter junction , will become short circuit( approximately). if you can see this behavior , your IGBT is intact.

You can make your life easier by considering likely and unlikely failure mechanisms. Unless someone supplies you with faked components (no idea, if it could be problem in your country), you rarely will face a thyristor that doesn't trigger. Devices mostly fail short circuit, caused by fatal overcurrent or overvoltage.

Transformers work in a given frequency range. The bike generator is an alternator: the frequency should change with speed becoming low for low speed.
If the reactive part of the impedence of the primary is too low the whole voltage is applied to the winding resistance that could be damaged. Also the generator is driven to work close to a short circ
