Harmonics effects on wye-wye transformers

  1. Mar 23, 2017 #1
    What effect do harmonics have on wye-wye transformers with neutral grounded? What about not grounded? Also, in a wye-delta, why is there less distortion in the delta side voltage if neutral in the wye side is not connected to ground?
    I understand why the Y transformers have distortion and the delta do not. But I don't understand why have a ground would effect either situation.
