Unformatted text preview: I br V Z = Since the loads are connected in delta, the line voltage appears across the load. The branch current is given by: Z R X j + = V 480 volt = X 12 ohm = R 24 ohm = Given values: Three identical impedances, Z = 24 + j12, are connected in delta to a 480 volt three-phase line. Find line current, power factor, real power, and reactive power. Problem 2-10: Solution...
