QUESTION: 5

Rab is the resistance between the terminals A and B, Rbc between B and C and Rca between C and A. These 3 resistors are connected in delta connection. After transforming to star, the resistance at A will be?

Solution:

When converting from delta to star, the resistances in star connection is equal to the product of the resistances it is connected to, divided by the total sum of the resistance.
Hence Rab*Rac/(Rab+Rbc+Rca).

QUESTION: 6

Rab is the resistance between the terminals A and B, Rbc between B and C and Rca between C and A. These 3 resistors are connected in delta connection. After transforming to star, the resistance at B will be?

Solution:

When converting from delta to star, the resistances in star connection is equal to the product of the resistances it is connected to, divided by the total sum of the resistance.
Hence Rab*Rbc/(Rab+Rbc+Rca).

QUESTION: 7

Rab is the resistance between the terminals A and B, Rbc between B and C and Rca between C and A. These 3 resistors are connected in delta connection. After transforming to star, the resistance at C will be?

Solution:

When converting from delta to star, the resistances in star connection is equal to the product of the resistances it is connected to, divided by the total sum of the resistance.
Hence Rac*Rbc/(Rab+Rbc+Rca).

QUESTION: 8

Find the current in the circuit.​ Solution:

The 3 5 ohm resistors are connected in delta. Changing it to star:
R1=R2=R3= 1.67 ohm.
One of the 1.67 ohm resistors are connected in series with the 2 ohm resistor and another 1.67 ohm resistor is connected in series to the 3 ohm resistor.
The resulting network has a 1.67 ohm resistor connected in series with the parallel connection of the 3.67 and 4.67 resistors.
The equivalent resistance is: 3.725A.
I=2/3.725= 0.54A.

R2=2*3/(2+3+4)
R3=2*4/(2+3+4).

QUESTION: 11

Find the equivalent delta circuit.​ Solution:

Using the star to delta conversion:
R1=4.53+6.66+4.53*6.66/1.23
R2=4.53+1.23+4.53*1.23/6.66
R3=1.23+6.66+1.23*6.66/4.56.

QUESTION: 12

Which, among the following is the correct expression for star-delta conversion?

Solution:

After converting to delta, each delta connected resistance is equal to the sum of the two resistance it is connected to+product of the two resistances divided by the remaining resistance. Hence R1=Ra+Rb+Ra*Rb/Rc, R2=Rc+Rb+Rc*Rb/Ra, R3=Ra+Rc+Ra*Rc/Rb.

QUESTION: 13

Find the equivalent resistance between X and Y.​ Solution:

The two 2ohm and one 5ohm resistors are connected in delta, changing them to star, we have R1=R3= 5*2/(5+2+2) = 10/9ohm,  R2 = 2*2/(9)ohm
The one 10/9ohm and one 4/9ohm resistors are connected in series to the 10 ohm and 2 ohm respectively.
This network can be further reduced to a network consisting of a 11.11ohm and 2.44ohm resistor connected in parallel and then series with 10/9 whose resultant is intern connected in parallel to the 10 ohm resistor.
