Objectives
• Discuss the differences between three-
phase and single-phase voltages.

wye connections.

## • Compute voltage and current values for

delta and wye circuits.

. 2
Introduction
• Most of the electrical power generated in
the world today is three-phase

## • Three-phase power is the most efficient

way that electricity could be produced,
transmitted, and consumed

3
Polyphase Circuits
• So far, we have only dealt with single-
phase circuits.

## • A single-phase ac power system consists

of a generator connected through a pair of
wires (a transmission line) to a load.

4
Three-Phase Circuits

## • We produce a single-phase alternating

voltage by rotating a magnetic field
through the conductors of a stationary coil.

5
Three-Phase Circuits
• A three-phase alternating voltage is
produced by placing three such coils
around a magnet, each separated by 120o.
This will produce three signals that are
each 120o out of phase.

Three-Phase Circuits

7
Three-Phase Circuits
 In three-phase circuits, one generator is
used to create three signals that are 120o
out of phase.

8
Three-Phase Circuits
1. The convention adopted to identify each
of the phase voltages is: R-red, Y-yellow,
and B-blue Or A - (red),B – (yellow), C –
(Blue).
2. The phase –sequence is given by the
sequence in which the conductors pass
the point initially taken by the red
conductor, eg. R, Y, B.

9
Phase Sequence
A set of balanced three-phase voltages consists of three sinusoidal
voltages that have identical amplitudes and frequencies but are out of
phase with each other by exactly 1200. The phases are referred to as
a, b, and c, and usually the a-phase is taken as the reference.
abc (positive) phase sequence: b-phase lags a-phase by
1200, and c-phase leads a-phase by 1200.

Va Vb  Vm -1200
Vc  Vm + 1200

Phase Sequence

## acb (negative) phase sequence: b-phase leads a-phase by 1200,

and c-phase lags a-phase by 1200.
Vb
Va  Vm 00
Va Vb  Vm + 1200
Vc  Vm -1200

Vc

## Another important characteristic of a set of balanced three-phase

voltages is that the sum of the voltages is zero.
Va  Vb  Vc  0
11
Instead of using one coil only , three coils are used arranged in one
axis with orientation of 120o each other. The coils are R-R1 , Y-Y1
and B-B1. The phases are measured in this sequence R-Y-B. I.e Y
lags R by 120o , B lags Y by 120o.

## The three winding can be represented by the above circuit. In this

case we have six wires. The emf are represented by eR , eY, eB.
e R  E m sin t
eY  E m sin( t-120  )
eB  E m sin( t-240  )
13
The circuit can be simplified as follows, where R1 can be
connected to Y and Y1 can be connected to B. In this case
the circuit is reduced to 4 wires.

Since the total emf is zero, R and B1 can be connected together, thus
we arrive with delta connection system.
14
Three-Phase Circuits
• There are two basic three-phase
connections, the wye connection and the
delta connection

15
The Wye Connection
 The wye connection is made by
connecting one end of each of the three-
phase windings together as shown

16
The Wye Connection

## • The voltage measured across a single

winding or phase is known as the phase
voltage (VP).

## • The voltage measured between the lines

is known as the line-to-line voltage or
simply as the line voltage (VL).

Balanced Three Phase
• Balanced three phase voltages are equal
in magnitude and are out of phase with
each other by 120o.

## • A balanced load is one which the phase

impedances are equal magnitude and in
phase.

Example.1
Three loads, each of resistance 30Ω, are connected in
star to a 415 V, 3 –phase supply. Determine (a) the
system phase voltage, (b) the phase current and (c)
the line current.

Solution:
(a)VL= √3VP. Hence, the phase voltage,
VP = VL/VP = 415/√3 = 239.6 V or
240 to 3 sig. fig

• Solution:
(b) Phase current, IP = VP/RP
= 240/30 = 8 A

## (c) For a star connection, IP = IL hence the

line current, IL = 8A.

26
Example .2
A star connected load consists of three identical coils
each of resistance 30Ω and inductance 127.3 mH. If the
line current is 5.08A, calculate the line voltage if the
supply frequency is 50 Hz.

Solution:

connecting each of the three-phase
windings in a triangular shape, like the

Since the loads are balanced, the magnitude of currents are
equaled but 120o out of phase. i.e I1 =I2=I3 ,=IP Therefore:-

IR = IL30; I1 = VP30;
IY = IL-90; I2 = VP-90;
IB = IL150; I3 = VP150;

If IL and VL are rms values for line current and line voltage
respectively. Then for delta () connection: VP = VL and IP
= IL/3. therefore:
P  3VL I L cos 

## For star connection () : VP = VL/3 and IP = IL. therefore:

P  3VL I L cos 

Systems
over single-phase supplies include:

## 1. For a given amount of power transmitted

through a system, the three-phase
system requires conductors with a
smaller cross-sectional area. This means
a saving of copper (aluminium) and thus
the original installation costs are less.

## 3. Three-phase motors are very robost,

relatively cheap, generally smaller, have
self-starting properties, provide a
maintenance compared with single-
phase motors.
