For star delta stater,the motor connection must have 6 cables from control panel and 6 terminals at induction motor ( U1,U2,V1,V2,W1,W3).To wiring the motor connection for star delta starter,the important thing that we must fully understand is about the basic of STAR DELTA MAGIC TRIANGLE.
For detail about star delta stater please read my last post about it. From this triangle diagram,we can determine the correct phase,cable termination for right terminal and the rotation.As we know,the star delta stater is so tricky if we not fully understand the concept and their method. This time i want share my technique when perform wiring task and connected to the star delta stater for induction motor.
Don`t worry,it simple and easy if we understand the basic concepts.I explains detail step by step how to do it :D
What is Star Delta connection?
Star delta magic triangle
When we refer to this diagram,We can see correct terminal for the winding for each phase : *CAUTION: Please refer to the name plate of motor to confirm the winding numbering ( U1,U2,V1,V2,W1,W2 ) and the motor connection of winding.
Why it very important??Because each manufacturing have their own style for numbering and winding motor connection.
Star Delta phase and terminals
RED PHASE : U1 and W2 YELLOW PHASE : U2 and V1 BLUE PHASE : V2 and W1 So..from this formula,we must wiring the motor follow the phase color code.
See my example below :-
We can refer the complete wiring for star delta starter diagram below.If you want change their rotation for clock-wise or anti clock-wise,you need change two of phase ( RED or BLUE) at delta contactor.I share the technique how to change rotation in my next post.
If you want motor rotation for clock-wise,the phase colors are RED,YELLOW,BLUE.But if you want anti clock-wise rotation,the phase colors are BLUE,YELLOW,RED.For star delta control wiring diagram,please refer to my post about star delta diagram control
