Q3 .


the equivalent single ∆-connected load

In general a Y-connected load (impedances Z_1.Z_2,Z_3) is
transformed to a ∆-connected (Z_1^',Z_2^',Z_3^' ) load according to {1}

Z_n^'=(Z_1 Z_2+Z_1 Z_3+Z_2 Z_3)/Z_n {1}

But for a balanced, load as given, Z_1=Z_2=Z_3=Z_Y substituted in
{1} we obtain ∆-connected load element impedances Z_∆ {2}

Z_∆=(Z_Y Z_Y+Z_Y Z_Y+Z_Y Z_Y)/Z_Y =(3Z_Y^2)/Z_Y

Z_∆=3Z_Y {2}

Since Z_Y=(15+j15)Ω then using {2}


This results in a circuit with two ∆-connected loads as shown below

You should be able to see from the topology of the above circuits
that there exist || combination of impedances Z_Δ ||Z_Δ {3} between
lines 1& 2, line 1 & 3, line 2 & 3

Z_Δ ||Z_Δ=(Z_Δ Z_Δ)/(Z_Δ+Z_Δ )=Z_Δ/2 ...
