By using the above relations, we can find the resistances of delta network from the resistances of star network. In this way, we can convert star network into delta network.
Example
Let us calculate the resistances of delta network, which are equivalent to that of star network as shown in the following figure.
Star to Delta Conversion Electrical Engineering (EE) Notes | EduRev
Given the resistances of star network as RA = 6 Ω, RB = 18 Ω and RC = 3 Ω.
We know the following relations of the resistances of delta network in terms of resistances of star network.
