I'm attempting to calculate the Line currents (with no sucess) of a 120V Delta transformer secondary with 3,4 & 5 kVA on phase windings A, B & C respectively with a phase sequence ABC. I originally started out with a 15kVA 3Ph load (5kVA per phase) and knowing how to calculate for a balanced system, tried to achieve the currents using nodal analysis which I was then going to apply to the problem above. I can't seem to calculate the line currents from the phase currents using vectors. I had started out with: Ia=3kVA/120V=25A@0deg, Ib=4kVA/120V=33.3A@-120deg, Ic=5kVA/120V=41.7A@120deg. IA=Ia-Ic, IB=Ib-Ia, IC=Ic-Ib. IA=(25cos(0)+i25sin(0)) - (41.7cos(120)+i41.7sin(120)) I'm not sure if this is the correct method. However using a sample that I know what the outcome should be, Ican't seem to get near close enough to the answer.

There is proven benefit for product development teams in using an integrated design and data management system.
However, not all product teams can afford, need or want all the various modules in an enterprise PLM system.
Rapid prototyping has become a game-changing innovation for designers, engineers and manufacturers. Previously, the process of creating wood or metal prototypes took weeks or months and the cost was often so prohibitive that designers skipped prototypes entirely and went directly from CAD to tooling.
