### What is the relationship between line current and phase current in a three phase star connected system?

The line current is exactly equal to the corresponding phase current, in a star-connected system, because it is the same current.

### What is the difference between line current and phase current for 3 phase delta connection?

'Line currents' are those currents flowing in the line conductors, whereas 'phase currents' are those currents flowing in the phases. Each line current is the phasor sum of the phase currents at the junction between a line and two phases. For a balanced load, the line current is 1.732 times the phase current.

### What is difference between line current and phase current?

A 'phase current' is the name given to the current in a phase and a 'line current' is the name given to the current in a line. 'Lines' are the conductors that connect a three-phase load to a three-phase supply. 'Phases' are the individual windings in a machine, or the individual impedances that make up a three-phase load. In the case of a star (wye) connected load, the line current is numerically equal to the… Read More

### Why line current is greater than phase current in delta connection?

Because if you apply Kirchhoff's Current Law to the junction between the line current and the two phase currents, the line current is the phasor (vector) sum of two phase currents. For a balanced load (only), this works out to 1.732 x phase current.

### What is the difference between Load Current Line Current and Phase Current?

A load current is a current drawn by an electrical load. In other words, it is the current flowing from the source to the load. For a single-phase system, a line current is a current flowing through the line, or 'hot', conductor, while the current through the neutral conductor is called the neutral current. For a three-phase system, the three 'hot' conductors between the load and the source are called 'lines' and, so, the currents… Read More

This configuration provides four… Read More

### What happens when phase to phase line is connected?

If there is a voltage differential from phase to phase, and a conductance (inverse of resistance) between them, then current (amperes) flows. This is no different than phase to neutral, i.e. voltage across conductance generates current, (I = EC, or I = E/A) except that neutral current is zero in a true phase to phase connection. Note that phase angle is always relative. In phase to neutral, it is relative to (typically) neutral; while in… Read More

### How do you convert line current to three phase current?

The current is the same in the three live wires. The voltage can be described as the line voltage (phase to neutral) or the phase voltage (phase to phase) which is larger by a factor of sqrt(3). So a line voltage of 230 v corresponds to a phase voltage of 400 v.

In a three-phase system, a line voltage is the voltage measured between any pair of line conductors. The line current is the current flowing in any of the lines. Line voltages are usually numerically equal when measured between any pair of lines. Each line current, however, may be different if the load is unbalanced, or the same if the load is balanced. In a residence, the line voltage is the voltage between the incoming line… Read More

### What will be the neutral current in domestic single phase three wire system?

the difference between the two line currents - anything from zero (no neutral current ) if perfectly balanced or only line-to line loads up to the entire line current if completely unbalanced (all current on one line and neutral, no current in other line).

### How can a tuned RC circuit improve the power factor of an inductive motor circuit?

The RC circuit can reduce the phase shift between the voltage and current in the power line. The phase shift is caused by the inductance of the motor. The phase shift between the voltage and current in the power line causes problems due to the presence of so called imaginary current or power that does no work but must be supplied by the power source.

### What is the relationship between phase and line values of current and voltage quantities for star and delta connected systems?

### Why cant take connection from phase line to neutral line?

A connection can be taken between phase lines, or between one phase and neutral. Both methods give a single-phase supply. Between phases the voltage is sqrt(3) times more than between one phase and neutral. In each case the load gives an unbalanced current on the 3-phase system but the idea is to average out the unbalances over a group of single-phase loads.

### Why is important for three phase supply voltage to be in-phase?

The phase voltages (i.e. line-to-neutral in a 4-wire system, or line-to-line in a 3-wire system) of a three-phase system are displaced from each other by 120 electrical degrees. Each phase voltage, in fact, is rarely in phase with its phase current, as the phase-angle (the angle by which a phase current lags or leads its phase voltage) is determined by the load not by the supply. In general, most loads are resistive-inductive so the phase… Read More

### What is phase voltage?

Answer for USA, Canada and countries running a 60 Hz power supply service. Most power lines will carry 3 phase power.

### How is phase current measured?

In the case of a delta connection, measuring phase current is relatively difficult, as access to the phases of most loads (e.g. motors) for the purpose of inserting an ammeter is not very practical. In the case of a star (wye) connected system, of course, it is relatively easy because the phase current is exactly the same as the line current. And line currents can be read very easily because the line conductors are accessible… Read More

### What is neutral negetive sequence current?

Negative sequence current is defined as 3I2 = (phase 1)*(1angle 0) + (phase 2)*(1angle 240) + (phase 3)*(1angle 120) Negative sequence current is seen in three phase power systems due to natural system imbalance. Also during unbalanced fault conditions such as line to line, Line to ground, and line to line to ground faults. It is not seen in purely balanced three phase faults.

### Does the formula used to calculate the turns ratio uses the phase voltages and phase current?

For a transformer, the turns ratio always applies between its primary and secondary windings. So the turns ratio for a three-phase transformer is the ratio of primary to secondary phase voltages, not between line voltages.

### 100kva 3 phase generator will provide how many amps per phase?

KVA means product of voltage and current. For 3 phase generator, its KVA = (1.732 X (Line Voltage) X Current)/1000. Put line voltage in this equation and get current.

### How do you convert 1kva into kw?

To get KW, multiply KVA by the power factor (cosine of the phase angle between voltage and current on the line).

### How do you calculate the voltage between a phase and ground?

There is no such thing as a 'phase-to-phase' voltage. The correct term is 'line-to-line' voltage or 'line voltage'. For a star (wye) connected system, the line voltage is 1.732 times the phase voltage, where the phase voltage is measured between any line and neutral.

### Relation between phase and line voltage?

If two phases are shorted together, you will get a phase to phase fault, which will cause protective devices to operate (fuses, relays, breakers, etc.). Comment There is no such thing as a 'phase-to-phase' voltage, although the term is frequently, but misguidedly, used in the field. The correct term is 'line-to-line' voltage, because phases exist between lines.

### Would only one wattmeter be needed to measure the total three-phase power on a balanced three-phase four-wire system?

Yes. The wattmeter's current coil will have to be connected into one of the line conductors, and its voltage coil between that same line conductor and the neutral point of the load. Connected this way, the wattmeter's voltage coil is measuring one of the three phase voltages (line-to-neutral voltage) while its current coil is measuring the corresponding phase current (for a 4-wire system, the phase current = line current). The power factor (cosine of the… Read More

phase - hot neutral - return ground, earth - safety ground Comment The correct term is 'line', not 'phase'. For example, after incorrectly using the term, 'phase', for many years, the latest edition of IET Wiring Regulations (BS7671) now uses the correct term, 'line', to describe the energised ('hot') conductor. Despite this, the terms are widely misused in the field. Unless used in this way, the resulting terms, 'line voltage (and current)' and 'phase voltage… Read More

### Is 1 kva 1 kw?

Yes, if the power factor (cosine of the phase-angle between voltage and current) is ' 1 '. In order for that to be true, the total load impedances on the line have to be pure resistive, with zero reactance. All of this stuff applies only on an AC line. On a DC line, voltage and current are always in phase, the power factor is 1, and KVA = KW .
