Three-phase load wired in delta configuration

**Library:**Simscape / Electrical / Passive / RLC Assemblies

The Delta-Connected Load block models a three-phase load wired in a delta configuration. Each limb of the load can include any combination of a resistor (R), capacitor (C), and inductor (L), connected in series or in parallel.

You can specify values for the R, L, and C components directly in terms of resistance, inductance, and capacitance, or by rated powers at a rated voltage and frequency.

If you parameterize the block directly in terms or R, L, and C values, then for initialization provide a three-element row vector of initial voltages for a capacitor, and a three-element row vector of initial currents for an inductor.

If you parameterize the block in terms of rated powers, then specify initial conditions in terms of an initial voltage, initial voltage phase, and initial frequency. For example, if the load is connected directly to a three-phase voltage source, then the initial conditions are identical to the source values for RMS line voltage, frequency, and phase shift. To specify zero initial voltage magnitude, set the initial voltage to 0.

For certain combinations of R, L, and C, for some circuit topologies, specify parasitic resistance or conductance values that help the simulation to converge numerically. These parasitic terms ensure that an inductor has a small parallel resistive path and that a capacitor has a small series resistance. When you parameterize the block in terms of rated powers, the rated power values do not account for these small parasitic terms. The rated powers represent only the R, L, and C values of the load itself.

The following two tables list the block parameters for each **Component
