Question
```what is the diffrence between star and delta connection ?
when we use each one ?what is the best ?```
Question Submitted By :: Electrical-Engineering
I also faced this Question!!     Answer Posted By

# 1
STAR Connection:
i)Supply voltage is VL/root3 but supply current
IL(line)=Iph(phase).
DELTA connection:
i)supply voltage is VL=Vph but supply current
is differ.
Both supply used in speed control of induction motor.
Transmission point of viwe delta is better.
Application point of viwe star is better.

In continuation to Answer 1, both are having their own
importance depending up on usage. How ever where neutral is
required star system will be adopted.

# 3
Star Connection:
1. It is a setup where in one end of each phase is
connected together so as to form a neutral.
3. The line current = Phase current
4. The Line voltage = sqrt(3)* Phase volatge.
DELTA CONNECTION:
1. It is a setup where in one end of one phase is joined to
starting end of another end so a ring is completed.
2. It is used for balanced loads.
3. There is no neutral in here
4. Line current = sqrt(3)*phase current
5. Line voltage = phase voltage.
line volt- voltage taken from two live wire= voltage taken
from one live neural connection

star is only used intial to because the supply voltage is
VL/root3 and due to high starting torque of induction
motor,'star delta circut used above 20kw.

 Is This Answer Correct ? 26 Yes 11 No

# 5
IN STAR CONNECTION THE LINE CURRENT EQUAL TO THE PHASE
CURRENT AND LINE VOLTAGE GREATER THAN PHASE VOLTAGE ,
VPH=VL/ROOT3 AND IN DELTA CONNECTION THE LINE CURRENT
GREATER THAN PHASE CURRENT , IL=IPH X ROOT3 AND LINE
VOLTAGE IS EQUAL TO PHASE VOLTAGE AND FINALLY BOTH
CONNECTIONS ARE VERY USEFUL IN THE 3 PHASE SYSTEM.

For transmission, delta connection is suitable while for
distribution system, star connection is sutable because
nuetral is available in star connection.

 Is This Answer Correct ? 14 Yes 1 No

# 7
In star connection neutarl is already provided, so when we need neutral, we shold use star connection.

delta connection is used to reduce the effect of circulating current in the circuit.

 Is This Answer Correct ? 14 Yes 3 No

# 8
4 transmition and 4 the motor at rated speed delta is
better b/c the current in delta is small/line at its
voltage than in Y so it saves the winding and the
insulation from over heating.

 Is This Answer Correct ? 17 Yes 7 No

# 9
star connection is used when we need nuetral ,
d connection can be used to decrease the circulating
current in the system

 Is This Answer Correct ? 11 Yes 2 No

# 10
delta is prefered becoz it torque and power is greater as
compared to star connection
star is only used initial to becoz of the Supply voltage is
VL/root3 thus preventing drop in the line

  Question Asked @ Answers Other Electrical Engineering Interview Questions how to store the thunder power? voltech 1 what happens when back feeding supply accidently collapses with normal supply ??? How?? [that is sometimes in a substation 11kv feeder if their ws long time permit work, back feeding supply will provide from nearest substation... if accidently after the permit work,they charged the feeder without removing back feeding wat will happen...?] KSEB 1 how the high voltages are produced?and what it causes? 4 In scott connected transformer number of turns in the primary winding of teaser transformer is % of number of primary turns of main transformer A 86.6 B 57.7 C 14.4 D 33.3 1 if neutral earthing is weak of a system then how can we improve it ? Technically explanation ?? CS 1 why motor rating in KW? 2 There are two nos of 33Kv/11Kv 5MVA transformers conecting through HT cable from substation having metering at substation itself.One transformer used at a time another remains stand by.Further 11 nos of 11Kv/440V transformers are attached on it and each transformer is having its own Power factor correction panel.Now one 33/11Kv transformer at no load condition/Stand by condition is having power factor in leading side upto 0.21 and while when another tranformer at same situation have power factor in lagging 0.42. Now one thing is clear that transformer one is having 1.5 Km long 33kv cable due to that PF goes in leading side and another is having only 250 mtr length remains him lagging. Now i want to know that how i can maintain the Power factor at no load/ stand by position though both are behaving in seperate manner. 1 how choose conductor &caple&wire depending upon the load HCL 2 why the manufacturer provide M and C terminals ? why they will not internally short them ? 1 what is safety measures of transformers. HP 12 Explain the working principle of Synchronous Generator and Assynchronous generator? TATA 11 The transformer which is smallest in size is and how to calculate that?
