A Delta to Wye transformer calculator is a useful tool for electrical engineers and technicians. It helps convert the impedance values from a Delta (Δ) configuration to a Wye (Y) configuration in transformers. Understanding how to convert these values is important for ensuring proper transformer performance and compatibility in electrical systems.

## Purpose and Functionality

The purpose of this calculator is to simplify the process of converting Delta impedances to Wye impedances. This is essential because Delta and Wye configurations are commonly used in power systems, and converting between them ensures that systems operate correctly. The calculator uses specific formulas to make these conversions accurately.

### Formula for Delta to Wye Conversion

To convert Delta impedances (ZAB,ZBC,ZCAZ_{AB}, Z_{BC}, Z_{CA}ZAB,ZBC,ZCA) to Wye impedances (ZA,ZB,ZCZ_A, Z_B, Z_CZA,ZB,ZC), we use the following formulas:

- ZA=ZAB⋅ZCAZAB+ZBC+ZCAZ_A = \frac{Z_{AB} \cdot Z_{CA}}{Z_{AB} + Z_{BC} + Z_{CA}}ZA=ZAB+ZBC+ZCAZAB⋅ZCA
- ZB=ZAB⋅ZBCZAB+ZBC+ZCAZ_B = \frac{Z_{AB} \cdot Z_{BC}}{Z_{AB} + Z_{BC} + Z_{CA}}ZB=ZAB+ZBC+ZCAZAB⋅ZBC
- ZC=ZBC⋅ZCAZAB+ZBC+ZCAZ_C = \frac{Z_{BC} \cdot Z_{CA}}{Z_{AB} + Z_{BC} + Z_{CA}}ZC=ZAB+ZBC+ZCAZBC⋅ZCA

### Inputs Required

To use the calculator, you need the following inputs:

- ZABZ_{AB}ZAB – Impedance between terminals A and B in the Delta configuration.
- ZBCZ_{BC}ZBC – Impedance between terminals B and C in the Delta configuration.
- ZCAZ_{CA}ZCA – Impedance between terminals C and A in the Delta configuration.

## Step-by-Step Calculation

### Example Calculation

Assume the Delta impedances are as follows:

- ZAB=10 ΩZ_{AB} = 10 \, \OmegaZAB=10Ω
- ZBC=15 ΩZ_{BC} = 15 \, \OmegaZBC=15Ω
- ZCA=20 ΩZ_{CA} = 20 \, \OmegaZCA=20Ω

**Calculate ZAZ_AZA:**- Multiply ZABZ_{AB}ZAB and ZCAZ_{CA}ZCA: 10×20=200 Ω210 \times 20 = 200 \, \Omega^210×20=200Ω2
- Sum ZAB,ZBC,Z_{AB}, Z_{BC},ZAB,ZBC, and ZCAZ_{CA}ZCA: 10+15+20=45 Ω10 + 15 + 20 = 45 \, \Omega10+15+20=45Ω
- Divide the product by the sum: ZA=20045≈4.44 ΩZ_A = \frac{200}{45} \approx 4.44 \, \OmegaZA=45200≈4.44Ω

**Calculate ZBZ_BZB:**- Multiply ZABZ_{AB}ZAB and ZBCZ_{BC}ZBC: 10×15=150 Ω210 \times 15 = 150 \, \Omega^210×15=150Ω2
- Use the same sum as before: 45 Ω45 \, \Omega45Ω
- Divide the product by the sum: ZB=15045≈3.33 ΩZ_B = \frac{150}{45} \approx 3.33 \, \OmegaZB=45150≈3.33Ω

**Calculate ZCZ_CZC:**- Multiply ZBCZ_{BC}ZBC and ZCAZ_{CA}ZCA: 15×20=300 Ω215 \times 20 = 300 \, \Omega^215×20=300Ω2
- Use the same sum as before: 45 Ω45 \, \Omega45Ω
- Divide the product by the sum: ZC=30045≈6.67 ΩZ_C = \frac{300}{45} \approx 6.67 \, \OmegaZC=45300≈6.67Ω
