Suppose it is more convenient to work with a wye network in a place
where the circuit contains a delta conﬁguration. We superimpose a wye
network on the existing delta network and ﬁnd the equivalent resistances
in the wye network. To obtain the equivalent resistances in the wye
network, we compare the two networks and make sure that the resistance
between each pair of nodes in the (or ) network is the same as the
resistance between the same pair of nodes in the Y (or T) network. For
terminals 1 and 2 in Figs. 2.47 and 2.48, for example, Rc

Ra + R b + R c (2.49) and subtracting Eq. (2.48) from Eq. (2.47b) yields

Ra + R b + R c (2.50) Subtracting Eq. (2.49) from Eq. (2.47a), we obtain

Ra + R b + R c (2.51) We do not need to memorize Eqs. (2.49) to (2.51). To transform a
network to Y, we create an extra node n as shown in Fig. 2.49 and follow
this conversion rule: Rc
n Each resistor in the Y network is the product of the resistors in the two adjacent
branches, divided by the sum of the three resistors.

equivalent delta network, we note from Eqs...
