Hi, I need to calculate the current draw for an unbalanced 3 phase resistive load with no neutral connection (so the phase connections are in delta)and I can not get my head around it. I have 7.2ohm A to B, 7.2ohm B to C and 5ohm C to A. Supply voltage is 400volt. Looking forward to your help. asked 3/28/2019 Graham W2
