    I'm not sure what you mean by 'How do i open circuit phase R'. If the impedance (resistor) in line 4 breaks or burns out it is open.

    I suspect this is a question about an unbalanced Y.

    ok so i should open circuit it by removing the load in line 4 correct and draw a direct line to the source?

    An open circuit means the conduction has failed, i.e. it is broken. If one wants to model an open ciruit, one would have to add a switch, which then opens.

    For example

    _______________ is closed

    _________/ _____ is open
