# Phase and Line current in 3 phase circuits

## Homework Statement I need to first find phase current in the load and line current from the supply

## The Attempt at a Solution I thought it would be easier to work with a star because then the Ztl would be in series with it... I am not sure how to find the current but my best guess was using this power equation. For the second current, I am not sure how to proceed.

You don't need to convert it in star. Keep it as it is and find the line current from the power equation.

What is the active power input to the motor?

Can I use the same power equation that I had used ?

I guess the power input is 74600 W

Yes.

Yes.

If it is only 90% then only 67140 W. I use this as P.

WIll V be 240/sqrt(3)

How can the input be less than the output? Use the efficiency correctly.

No.
