    Use the Delta-Y transformation to convert the Delta formed by buses 1,2 and 3 to a Y and then we end up with a simple series-parallel network, which can be easily solved.

    If Z12, Z13, and Z23 are the impedances across buses 1-2, 1-3 and 2-3, we get the Y network with,

    Z1 = Z12*Z13/ZSum, Z2 = Z12*Z23/ZSum, Z3 = Z23*Z31/ZSum, where
    ZSum = Z12+ Z13+Z23

    Z12 = j0.25, Z13 = j0.5, Z23 = ...
