Obtaining the equation from wye to delta transformation:

The value of the resistor on any one side of the delta, network is the sum of all the two-product
combinations of resistors in the star network divide by the star resistor located directly opposite the
delta resistor being found. For resistor Ry is given with respect to terminal 1:
++
Ry =

resistor Rx is given as with respect to terminal 3:
++
Rx =

Resistor Rz is given as with respect to terminal 2:


++
Rz =
