5. A balanced delta-connected load consisting of a pure resistances of 18 per phase is in

parallel with a purely resistive balanced Y-connected load of 12per phase as shown in Fig. 3.

The combination is connected to a three-phase balanced supply of 346.41-V rms (line-to-line) via

a three-phase line having an inductive reactance of j3per phase. Taking the phase voltage Van

as reference, determine

(a) The magnitudes of current, real power, and reactive power drawn from the supply.

(b) The line-to-neutral and the line-to-line voltage magnitudes of phase a at the combined load

terminals.
