I have conflicting opinions on this project. We are looking to need 3 phase 480v service mostly for process heating (225kW). We have other items such as lights, heat tracing, etc...which has me thinking Wye (multiple voltage requirements). Another individual in the this project said they want delta coming in. Would a delta connection be more advantage in this scenario? In researching just to check my thoughts, I can't see delta in this scenario as I would have to have a neutral for lower voltage equipment which is going to give me a high leg I can't see any use for. I get the reliability is higher for delta, but I can't see this being an issue as if for some reason we lost a phase (mostly for process heating), low temp shutdowns in the controller will shut down the system and we would analyze the fault. I'm not fluent in the wye vs delta, but in research, it seems that delta is used more for motor applications also.
Just want to see if I'm missing something from my end and get other opinions.

Partial Reconfiguration (PR) allows FPGAs to dynamically change modules without disrupting other parts of the design. This paper discusses the use cases of partial reconfiguration as well as considerations when designing partial reconfiguration firmware using the Xilinx Vivado design tool targeting the RFSoC.

With a growing number of parts manufactured directly by additive manufacturing techniques, it is important to lay down design principles suitable for such manufacturing processes and to ensure parts are designed for additive manufacturing. There are several factors that are to be considered at the design stage. Few such design issues in additive manufacturing are discussed in this paper. Download Now
Plastic parts not only need to meet the short-term color and appearance requirements, but also need to be resistant to long term color shift and fading. This paper discusses various points related to aesthetics of plastic parts and what design engineers need to know about science of color and appearance. Download Now
Material, design, tooling and processing are as important as the four wheels of a high performance of a car. Use of simulation tools play an important role as well. This paper also throws light on DFMPro â€“ a design assistant solution. DFMPro provides a rule-based approach to information on direct and indirect aspects of design performance and cost. Download Now
