LEADING THE WAY THROUGH INNOVATION Havell’s has focussed on research and development to produce novel products. The physical principle of production of mechanical force by the interaction of an electric current and a magnetic field was known as early as 1821. It has also entered into alliances with several companies. nearly always by the interaction of magnetic fields and current-carrying conductors. developing a strong product portfolio to capture them. Traction motors used on vehicles often perform both tasks. . Electric motors are found in myriad uses such as industrial fans. Electric motors may be classified by the source of electric power. but commercial exploitation of electric motors on a large scale required efficient electrical generators and electrical distribution networks.

416. Alternating Current (AC) types.Principle The principle of conversion of electrical energy into mechanical energy by electromagnetic means was demonstrated by the British scientist Michael Faraday in 1821 and consisted of a free-hanging wire dipping into a pool of mercury. Categorization Of Electric Motors The classic division of electric motors is:1). Ferraris published his research in a paper to the Royal Academy of Sciences in Turin. Tesla would later attain U. In 1888. Patent 0. his teacher. 2). Electric Motor (December 1889). A typical AC motor consists of two parts: . In 1885. Tesla had suggested that the commutators from a machine could be removed and the device could operate on a rotary field of force. When a current was passed through the wire. This classic alternating current electro-magnetic motor was an induction motor.194. the wire rotated around the magnet. showing that the current gave rise to a circular magnetic field around the wire. which resembles the motor seen in many of Tesla's photos. and pioneered the use of a rotary field of force to operate machines. Universal Motor ( DC motors that runs on AC power). This type of motor is now used for the vast majority of commercial applications. 3). Galileo Ferraris independently researched the concept. He exploited the principle to design a unique two-phase induction motor in 1883. Michail Osipovich Dolivo-Dobrovolsky later invented a three-phase "cage-rotor" in 1890. Nikola Tesla invented the rotating magnetic field. AC Motors In 1882.S. A permanent magnet was placed in the middle of the pool of mercury. Professor Poeschel. Direct Current (DC) types. stated that would be akin to building a perpetual motion machine.

An outside stationary stator having coils supplied with AC current to produce a rotating magnetic field. although in practice they are nearly always used with AC supplies. which use internal and external commutation respectively to create an oscillating AC current from the DC source—so they are not purely DC machines in a strict sense.There are four types of DC motor: • • • • DC series motor DC shunt motor Permanent Magnet DC Motor DC compound motor DC compound motor . The name derives from the fact that it may use AC or DC supply current. The principle is that in a wound field DC motor the current in both the field and the armature (and hence the resultant magnetic fields) will alternate (reverse polarity) at the same time. and. Two examples of pure DC designs are Michael Faraday's homopolar motor (which is uncommon). and the resultant motor is generally less efficient than an equivalent pure DC motor. DC Motors A DC motor is designed to run on DC electric power. In practice.there are also two types: o o Cumulative compound Differentially compounded Universal Motors A variant of the wound field DC motor is the universal motor. . and the ball bearing motor. the motor must be specially designed to cope with the AC (impedance must be taken into account. An inside rotor attached to the output shaft that is given a torque by the rotating field. as must the pulsating force). which is (so far) a novelty. By far the most common DC motor types are the brushed and brushless types. and hence the mechanical force generated is always in the same direction.

a motor causes a propellor or wide. and microwave ovens use motors to turn the tray food sits on. electric motors are used to turn saws and blades in cutting and slicing processes. along with helicopters.The advantage of the universal motor is that AC supplies may be used on motors which have the typical characteristics of DC motors. Toaster ovens also use electric motors to turn a conveyor in order to move food over heating elements. Linear motors are often used to push products into containers horizontally. specifically high starting torque and very compact design if high running speeds are used. Blenders use electric motors to mix liquids. and conveyor belts. Many kitchen appliances also use electric motors to accomlish various jobs. allowing vertical motion. Food processors and grinders spin blades to chop and break up foods. In flying robots. Obvious uses would be in rotating machines such as fans. Also. modern machines. Electric motors are also popular in robotics. turbines. As a result such motors are usually used in AC devices such as food mixers and power tools which are used only intermittently. Continuous speed control of a universal motor running on AC is easily obtained by use of a thyristor circuit. causing it to appear to be moving up and down. if not most. The negative aspect is the maintenance and short life problems caused by the commutator. . an electric motor spins an irregular figure with more area on one side of the axle than the other. In industrial and manufacturing businesses. in many vibrating or oscillsting machines. while stepped speed control can be accomplished using multiple taps on the field coil. Uses Electric motors are used in many. drills. Household blenders that advertise many speeds frequently combine a field coil with several taps and a diode that can be inserted in series with the motor (causing the motor to run on half-wave rectified AC). the wheels on electric cars. and servo motors are used to turn arms and legs in humanoid robots. They are used to turn the wheels of vehicular robots. and to spin gears and mixers (the latter very common in food manufacturing). flat blades to spin and create drag force.

. Historic Developments Before the connection between magnetism and electricity was discovered. where the contact between two insulators leaves them charged. It is somewhat analogous to a water pump. plates and disks to carry charge to a high potential electrode. generally using electromagnetic induction. a wind turbine. Because of their inefficiency and the difficulty of insulating machines producing very high voltages. The charge was generated using either of two mechanisms: • • Electrostatic induction The turboelectric effect.ELECTRICAL GENERATOR In electricity generation. electrostatic generators had low power ratings and were never used for generation of commercially-significant quantities of electric power. an internal combustion engine. motors and generators have many similarities. The Wimshurst machine and Van de Graaff generator are examples of these machines that have survived. which is already present in the wire of its windings. compressed air or any other source of mechanical energy. but it does not create electricity or charge. A generator forces electric charges to move through an external electrical circuit. an electrical generator is a device that converts mechanical energy to electrical energy. The reverse conversion of electrical energy into mechanical energy is done by a motor. These generated very high voltages and low currents. water falling through a turbine or waterwheel. a hand crank. electrostatic generators were invented that used electrostatic principles. The source of mechanical energy may be a reciprocating or turbine steam engine. They operated by using moving electrically charged belts. which creates a flow of water but does not create the water inside.

It produced a small DC voltage. and large amounts of current. called the 'Faraday disc'. is that a potential difference is generated between the ends of an electrical conductor that moves perpendicular to a magnetic field. the current would circulate backwards in regions outside the influence of the magnetic field. The principle. He formulated the concept of the dynamo at least 6 years before Siemens and Wheatstone but didn't patent it as he thought he wasn't the first to realize this. Experimenters found that using multiple turns of wire in a coil could produce higher more useful voltages. two electromagnets opposite to each other induce the magnetic field around the rotor. Another disadvantage was that the output voltage was very low. Wire windings became a basic feature of all subsequent generator designs. using a copper disc rotating between the poles of a horseshoe magnet. In the prototype of the single-pole electric starter (finished between 1852 and 1854) both the stationary and the revolving parts were electromagnetic. He also built the first electromagnetic generator. due to the single current path through the magnetic flux. later called Faraday's law. Jedlik's invention was decades ahead of its time. The first Turbo generator Designed by the Hungarian engineer Ottó Bláthy in 1903 . and induces waste heating of the copper disc. While current flow was induced directly underneath the magnet. This design was inefficient due to self-cancelling counter flows of current in regions not under the influence of the magnetic field.Jedlik's Dynamo In 1827. Since the output voltage is proportional to the number of turns. Hungarian Anyos Jedlik started experimenting with electromagnetic rotating devices which he called electromagnetic self-rotors. generators could be easily designed to produce any desired voltage by varying the number of turns. This counter flow limits the power output to the pickup wires. Faraday Disk In 1831-1832 Michael Faraday discovered the operating principle of electromagnetic generators. In essence the concept is that instead of permanent magnets.

larger machines have the constant magnetic field provided by one or more electromagnets. and the rotary converter. alternator. Large power generation dynamos are now rarely seen due to the now nearly universal use of alternating current for power distribution and solid state electronic AC to DC power conversion. including the DC electric motor. very large direct-current dynamos were the only means of power generation and distribution. Through a series of accidental discoveries. which provides a constant magnetic field. dynamo or motor. In a generator. On small machines the constant magnetic field may be provided by one or more permanent magnets. and a set of rotating windings which turn within that field. Electrical: • Armature: The power-producing component of an alternator. Terminology The two main parts of a generator or motor can be described in either mechanical or electrical terms. . generator.The Dynamo was the first electrical generator capable of delivering power for industry. dynamo or motor. Stator: The stationary part of an alternator. But before the principles of AC were discovered. Mechanical: • • Rotor: The rotating part of an alternator. The first dynamo was built by Hippolyte Pixii in 1832. generator. the AC alternator. The dynamo uses electromagnetic principles to convert mechanical rotation into a pulsing direct electric current through the use of a commutator. A dynamo machine consists of a stationary structure. the AC synchronous motor. generator. or dynamo the armature windings generate the electrical current. Now power generation dynamos are mostly a curiosity. which are usually called field coils. dynamo or motor. The armature can be on either the rotor or the stator. the dynamo became the source of many later inventions.

• Field: The magnetic field component of an alternator. and share several key functional parts. • Power Transformers This is the most common type of transformer. refer to the Field coil article. Mumetal shields can be fitted to reduce EMI (electromagnetic interference) A screen winding is occasionally used between the 2 power windings Small appliance and electronics transformers may have a thermal cut out built in Occasionally seen in low profile format for use in restricted spaces • • • • • • . Direct current machines necessarily have the commutator on the rotating shaft. the various types employ the same basic principle as discovered in 1831 by Michael Faraday. widely used in appliances to convert mains voltage to low voltage to power electronics • • • Widely available in power ratings ranging from mW to MW Insulated laminations minimize eddy current losses Small appliance and electronic transformers may use a split bobbin. generator. dynamo or motor. AC generators nearly always have the field winding on the rotor and the stator as the armature winding. The magnetic field of the dynamo or alternator can be provided by either electromagnets or permanent magnets mounted on either the rotor or the stator. Other shape pairs are sometimes used. Despite their design differences. so the armature winding is on the rotor of the machine. (For a more technical discussion. using slip rings.) Because power transferred into the field circuit is much less than in the armature circuit. TRANSFORMER A variety of types of electrical transformer are made for different purposes. Only a small amount of field current must be transferred to the moving rotor. giving a high level of insulation between the windings Rectangular core Core laminate stampings are usually in EI shape pairs.

Since the current in the windings is lower. one designed for stepping down a voltage will deliver slightly less voltage than required if used to step up. smaller and more efficient than an isolating (two-winding) transformer of the same rating. The three primary windings are connected together and the three secondary windings are connected together.• laminated core made with silicon steel with high permeability Auto-Transformer An autotransformer has only a single winding. For example. It can be connected to a 230-volt supply to drive 115-volt equipment. lighter. The higher voltage will be connected to the ends of the winding. For voltage ratios not exceeding about 3:1. Delta-Delta and Y-Y. the transformer is smaller. A . the ground may be connected to a center tap on one winding (high leg delta) or one phase may be grounded (corner grounded delta). an autotransformer is cheaper. or reversed to drive 230-volt equipment from 115 volts. or all three phases can be connected to a single polyphase transformer. The most common connections are Y-Delta. AC or pulsed voltage is applied across a portion of the winding. and a higher (or lower) voltage is produced across another portion of the same winding. which is tapped at some point along the winding. A vector group indicates the configuration of the windings and the phase angle difference between them. Polyphase Transformers For three-phase power. The difference is usually slight enough to allow reversal where the actual voltage level is not critical. This is true of isolated winding transformers too. for example. the earth connection point is usually the center point of a Y winding. In practice. three separate single-phase transformers can be used. transformer losses mean that autotransformers are not perfectly reversible. and 115 volts between one end and the tap. a transformer with a tap at the center of the winding can be used with 230 volts across the entire winding. lighter cheaper and more efficient. If a winding is connected to earth (grounded). Delta-Y. to interconnect 33 kV and 66 kV sub-transmission networks. If the secondary is a Delta winding. and the lower voltage from one end to a tap. Large three-phase autotransformers are used in electric power distribution systems.

since these are now banned. In powertype pulse transformers. For the same reason. Special high voltage pulse transformers are also used to generate high power pulses for radar. pulses with fast rise and fall times and a relatively constant amplitude).[1] Formerly. particle accelerators. substitute fire-resistant liquids such as silicone oils are instead used. Pulse Transformers A pulse transformer is a transformer that is optimised for transmitting rectangular electrical pulses (that is. high insulation resistance and high breakdown voltage are required. or where the transformer is used in a building or underground. To minimise distortion of the pulse shape. or other high energy pulsed power applications. the core and coils of the transformer are immersed in oil which cools and insulates. a pulse transformer needs to have low values of leakage inductance and distributed capacitance. The oil is cooled by the outside of the tank in small ratings. . • Oil Cooled Transformer For large transformers used in power distribution or electrical substations. and a high open-circuit inductance. oil pumps are used to circulate the oil and an oil-to-water heat exchanger may also be used. often for matching logic drivers to transmission lines. Small versions called signal types are used in digital logic and telecommunications circuits. Larger power versions are used in the electrical power distribution industry to interface low-voltage control circuitry to the highvoltage gates of power semiconductors. A good transient response is necessary to maintain the rectangular pulse shape at the secondary. a low coupling capacitance (between the primary and secondary) is important to protect the circuitry on the primary side from high-powered transients created by the load. Medium-sized power versions are used in power-control circuits such as camera flash controllers.special purpose polyphase transformer is the zigzag transformer. because a pulse with slow edges would create switching losses in the power semiconductors. There are many possible configurations that may involve more or fewer than six windings and various tap connections. indoor transformers required to be fire-resistant used PCB liquids. Oil circulates through ducts in the coil and around the coil and core assembly. Where a higher rating is required. and in larger ratings an air-cooled radiator is used. moved by convection.

Good high-frequency response requires carefully designed and implemented windings without excessive leakage inductance or stray capacitance. For good low-frequency response a relatively large iron core is required. Output transformers are on the left. the larger this product. but an output transformer is needed to couple the relatively high impedance (up to a few hundred ohms depending upon configuration) of the output valve(s) to the low impedance of a loudspeaker.The product of the peak pulse voltage and the duration of the pulse (or more accurately. bass guitar) to low impedance signals to enable them to be connected to a microphone input on the mixing console. Generally speaking.g. Early transistor audio power amplifiers often had output transformers. the voltage-time integral) is often used to characterise pulse transformers. The power supply toroidal transformer is on right. . A particularly critical component is the output transformer of an audio power amplifier. whatever energy stored in the coil during the pulse must be "dumped" out before the pulse is fired again. Transformers are also used in DI boxes to convert high-impedance instrument signals (e. Audio Transformers Transformers in a tube amplifier. the larger and more expensive the transformer. Audio transformers are usually the factor which limit sound quality when used.) Most solid-state power amplifiers need no output transformer at all. Valve circuits for quality reproduction have long been produced with no other (inter-stage) audio transformers. (The valves can deliver a low current at a high voltage. high power handling increases the required core size. but they were eliminated as designers discovered how to design amplifiers without them. the speakers require high current at low voltage. Pulse transformers by definition have a duty cycle of less than 1. All this makes for an expensive component. electronic circuits with wide frequency response and low distortion are relatively simple to design.

These fuses stop the flow of current in the event of an internal fault or short-circuit in the transformer. or "interrupt" the relatively small "magnetizing current" of the substation transformer. (This is the small amount of current needed to set up the magnetic field in the transformer core.V. Overloads due to faults or short circuits on the distribution side of the substation are prevented by low voltage protective equipment. The brush type phosphor bronze contacts provide positive high pressure multilane connection and wiping and cleaning action on closing. It can only break.

The most commonly used switch in small to medium substations is a GANG-OPERATED SWITCH. not to disconnect the transformer from the load. "Gang-operated" because the three separate switches for each phase are operated as a group from a single control. It is like a large safety switch with no load breaking capability. Drop out fuse are complete with fuse carrier of fiber glass tube with both end heavily tinned non ferrous metal parts.Star) 2000 KVA.) A substation must first be disconnected from its secondary or load side before the primary or high voltage side can be disconnected using the disconnect switch. The next device encountered in a substation is the HIGH VOLTAGE POWER FUSES / DROP OUT FUSE. The purpose of this switch is to disconnect the substation from the incoming line. L. Depending on the line voltage. The pressure exerted by the contacts initiates the .

The typical lightning arrester also known as surge arrester has a high voltage terminal and a ground terminal. The Fault Clearing Process . The arc produced by the separation of current carrying contacts is interrupted by a suitable medium and by adopting suitable techniques for arc extinction. They are utilized when there is a need to remotely switch the incoming or outgoing transmission circuits in a substation. The next device encountered in a substation is LIGHTNING ARRESTER A lightning arrester is a device used on electrical power systems to protect the insulation on the system from the damaging effect of lightning. A Circuit Breaker suitable for three phase system is called a ‘triple-pole Circuit Breaker. The next device encountered in a substation is TRANSMISSION LEVEL CIRCUIT BREAKERS OR CIRCUIT SWITCHERS / MINIMUM OIL CIRCUIT BREAKER are some of the last devices found in a substation. the current from the surge is diverted around the protected insulation in most cases to earth. The interrupters are mounted on support insulators. The Circuit Breakers are automatic Switches which can interrupt fault currents. They also may be used in place of high voltage power fuses. Metal oxide varistors (movs) have been used for power system protection since the mid 1970s. Fuse units are manufactured up to and including 33kv system.opening movement of the fuse carrier copper & copper alloys high pressure heavily tinned metal contacts for fix top contacts assembly and bottom contact assembly. The interrupter encloses a set of fixed and moving contact's The moving contacts can be drawn apart by means of the operating links of the operating mechanism. The operating mechanism of the Circuit Breaker gives the necessary energy for opening and closing of contacts of the Circuit Breakers. The D. The part of the Circuit Breakers connected in one phase is called the pole.O. When a lightning surge or switching surge travels down the power system to the arrester. The Circuit Breaker can be classified on the basis of the arc extinction medium. Each pole of the Circuit Breaker comprises one or more interrupter or arc-extinguishing chambers.

Relay contacts close the trip circuit of the Circuit Breaker closes and trip coil is energized. These correspond to open Circuit Breaker contacts and closed Circuit Breaker contacts respectively. The classification of the Circuit Breakers based on the medium of arc extinction is as follows: (1) Air break' Circuit Breaker.Fault Occurs. . The current reaches final zero as the arc is extinguished and does not restrict again. The arc is extinguished in the Circuit Breaker by suitable techniques. The fault is said to be cleared. During the abnormal or faulty conditions the relays sense the fault and close the trip circuit of the Circuit Breaker. wave. (2) Oil Circuit Breaker (tank type of bulk oil) (3) Minimum oil Circuit Breaker. The type of the Circuit Breaker is usually identified according to the medium of arc extinction. The Circuit Breaker contacts separate. The relay takes some time to close its contacts. Thereafter the Circuit Breaker opens. The moving part of the relay move because of the increase in the operating torque. 3 .The operating mechanism starts operating for the opening operation. The arc is extinguished at some natural current zero of A. As the relay contacts close. The process of current interruption is completed when the arc is extinguished and the current reaches final zero value. (Miniature Circuit Breaker). the trip circuit is closed and the operating mechanism of the Circuit Breaker starts the opening operation.During the normal operating condition the Circuit Breaker can be opened or closed by a station operator for the purpose of Switching and maintenance. the fault impedance being low. The operation of automatic opening and closing the contacts is achieved by means of the operating mechanism of the Circuit Breaker. As the fault occurs. 4 .

The contacts of the Circuit Breaker open and an arc is draw between them.C.Arc is drawn between the breaker contacts. the currents increase and the relay gets actuated. 2 . The process of fault clearing has the following sequence: 1. The Circuit Breaker has two working positions.

A current transformer also isolates the measuring instruments from what may be very high voltage in the primary circuit. a current transformer has a primary winding.

which may cause arcing. Window-type current transformers are also common. The primary winding may be a permanent part of the current transformer. revenue-grade CTs drive the electrical utility's watt-hour meter on virtually every building with three-phase service. protection devices and revenue metering may use separate CTs). which can have circuit cables run through the middle of an opening in the core to provide a single-turn primary winding. . Often. slight inaccuracies may occur.objective of current transformer design is to ensure that the primary and secondary circuits are efficiently coupled. multiple CTs are installed as a "stack" for various uses (for example. and every residence with greater than 200 amp service. This will produce a high voltage across the open secondary (into the range of several kilovolts in some cases). Similarly potential transformers are used for measuring voltage and monitoring the operation of the power grid. so that the secondary current bears an accurate relationship to the primary current. with a heavy copper bar to carry current through the magnetic core. The most common design of CT consists of a length of wire wrapped many times around a silicon steel ring passed over the circuit being measured. When conductors passing through a CT are not centered in the circular (or oval) opening. The CT is typically described by its current ratio from primary to secondary. Safety Precautions Care must be taken that the secondary of a current transformer is not disconnected from its load while current is flowing in the primary. The high voltage produced will compromise operator and equipment safety and permanently affect the accuracy of the transformer. Current transformers used in metering equipment for three-phase 400 ampere electricity supply Usage Current transformers are used extensively for measuring current and monitoring the operation of the power grid. as the transformer secondary will attempt to continue driving current across the effectively infinite impedance. with a secondary of many hundreds of turns. Along with voltage leads. The CT's primary circuit therefore consists of a single 'turn' of conductor.

This applies to current transformers as well. Y3) may also be available on the same voltage transformer. At any instant terminals with the same suffix numeral have the same polarity and phase. They are designed to present negligible load to the supply being measured and to have a precise voltage ratio to accurately step down high voltages so that metering and protective relay equipment can be operated at a lower potential. and sometimes an X3 tap may be present. H2 (sometimes H0 if it is internally grounded) and X1. X1. modern meters eliminate the need VTs for most secondary service voltages. used for metering and protection in high-voltage circuits.) are often referred to as polarity. X2. etc. VTs are typically used in circuits . Typically the secondary of a voltage transformer is rated for 69 or 120 Volts at rated primary voltage. Correct identification of terminals and wiring is essential for proper operation of metering and protection relays. The transformer winding high-voltage connection points are typically labelled as H1. Y2. for multi-ratio CT's Voltage Transformers Voltage transformers (VTs) or potential transformers (PTs) are another type of instrument transformer. The selected tap. Sometimes a second isolated winding (Y1. Y1. The terminal identifications (H1. The high side (primary) may be connected phase to ground or phase to phase. While VTs were formerly used for all voltages greater than 240V primary. to match the input ratings of protection relays. The low side (secondary) is usually phase to ground.Accuracy The accuracy of a CT is directly related to a number of factors including: • • • • • • • • Burden Burden class/saturation class Rating factor Load External electromagnetic fields Temperature and Physical configuration.

and less weight than their modular counterparts. special Three-Phase transformers are built for those tasks. This is only partially true. Three-Phase Transformer Circuits Since Three-Phase is used so often for power distribution systems. Fused Transformer models are designated by a suffix of “F” for one fuse or “FF” for two fuses. Essentially it looks like three single Phase transformers sharing a joined core as in Figure below. each set wound around one leg of an iron core assembly. eliminating the requirement for a special Three-Phase transformer. However.where the system voltage level is above 600 V. . Potential Transformer is designed for monitoring single phase and three phase power line voltages in power metering applications The primary terminal can be connected either in line to line or in line to neutral configuration. Modern meters eliminate the need of VT's since the voltage remains constant and it is measured in the incoming supply. less size. and are able to perform with less material requirement. it makes sense that we would need Three-Phase transformers to be able to step voltages up or down. A Potential Transformer is a special type of transformer that allows meters to take readings from electrical service connections with higher voltage (potential) than the meter is normally capable of handling without at Potential Transformer. A Three-Phase Transformer is made of three sets of primary and secondary windings. as regular single-phase transformers can be ganged together to transform power between two three-Phase systems in a variety of configurations.

. Remember the proper phase relationships between the phase windings of Δ and Y: (Figure below) .Secondary Y Δ Y Δ Y Y Δ Δ The reasons for choosing a Y or Δ configuration for Transformer winding connections are the same as for any other Three-Phase application: Y connections provide the opportunity for multiple voltages.Three-Phase Transformer core has three set of windings. Whether the winding sets share a common core assembly or each winding pair is a separate Transformer. the winding connection options are the same: • Primary • • • • . The various combinations of ways that these windings can be connected together in will be the focus of this section. while Δ connections enjoy a higher level of reliability (if one winding fails open. Those sets of primary and secondary windings will be connected in either Δ or Y configurations to form a complete unit. Probably the most important aspect of connecting three sets of primary and secondary windings together to form a Three-Phase Transformer bank is paying attention to proper winding phasing (the dots used to denote “polarity” of windings). the other two can still maintain full line voltages to the load).

(Δ) The winding polarities must stack together in a complementary manner ( + to -). B3. as may outputs B1. starting with Figure below. . Let me illustrate. I'll show the wiring connections for a Δ -Y configuration: Figure below. Three individual transformers are to be connected together to transform power from one Three Phase system to another. First.(Y) The center point of the “Y” must tie either all the “-” or all the “+” winding points together. A3 may be wired either “Δ” or “Y”. A2. Getting this phasing correct when the windings aren't shown in regular Y or Δ configuration can be tricky. Inputs A1. B2.
