Question

If

$V_{ab} = 400 V$

in a balanced Y-connected three-phase generator, find the phase voltages, assuming the phase sequence is: (a) abc (b) acb

Solution

VerifiedStep 1

1 of 2a) We have in abc phase sequence

$\begin{align*} V_{ab}=\sqrt{3}\cdot V_{a}\angle30^{\circ}, \end{align*}$

so

$\begin{align*} V_{a}=231\angle-30^{\circ}\,\text{V}.\end{align*}$

Then we can write

$\begin{align*} V_{b}=V_{a}\angle-120^{\circ} \end{align*}$

$\begin{align*} V_{c}=V_{a}\angle120^{\circ}. \end{align*}$

Thus

$\begin{align*} V_{b}=231\angle-150^{\circ}\,\text{V} \end{align*}$

$\begin{align*} V_{c}=231\angle+90^{\circ}\,\text{V}. \end{align*}$
