There are some pros and cons to both types of connection. The Delta connection draws more line currents and produces more torque than the Star connection. The following video shows how to connect a motor in Star and Delta, measure current and compare motor torques. Hopefully, it will help you decide which type of connection is better for your project.

Star connection

Star and Delta connections are two different ways of connecting three-phase motors to a power source. In a delta configuration, the motor draws more line current and produces more torque than in a star configuration.

Which is Faster Star or Delta?

Both ways of connecting three-phase motors can effectively achieve a smooth start and regular operation without overheating the reverse osmosis faucet. Star connections have advantages over delta connections and are generally used when starting torque is not an issue.

Star delta starter

A Star delta starter is a kind of starter motor. It uses two contactors to switch the current from the mains to the windings. A timer starts, the star contactor de-energizes after some seconds, and the delta contactor energize. These contractors are separated by interlock contacts so they do not energize simultaneously. This type of starter motor is also known as a closed transition starter.

Star/wye connection

A delta or star/wye connection is an electrical connection that connects two or three wires at a neutral point. There are a few differences between these two kinds of connections.

Delta connection

The main difference between a Delta connection and a Star connection is the amount of phase current drawn by a motor. The motor will draw SQRT(3) times more phase current in a Delta connection than a Star connection. This difference in phase current can be important for some applications, such as when a motor needs to start quickly.

Star connected motors

When comparing Star-connected motors vs Delta motors, it is essential to know that the former will draw more line current and will have higher torque, whereas the latter will produce a lower torque. To better understand the differences between these motors, we’ve put together a video that demonstrates how they are connected and compares their torques.

Star connected transformer

There are two common types of three-phase transformers: delta and star. A delta-connected transformer has a three-phase line voltage that is the same as the primary voltage. A star-connected transformer has four wires and is connected in a star pattern. In both types, the primary line voltage is the same as the phase current. However, a delta-connected transformer has a lower line voltage.
