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.
