• ## Description

The Delta-Connected Variable Load block models a three-phase variable load wired in a delta configuration. Each limb of the load contains a resistor. The block calculates the resistance required to draw the real power of the physical signal input P at the rated voltage that you specify. Therefore, the block can represent a real load.

To ensure that the resistance is always greater than zero, you specify the minimum real power that the load consumes. The minimum real power must be greater than zero.

### Equations

The resistance is defined by

`$R=3\frac{{V}_{Rated}^{2}}{P},$`

where:

• R is the per-phase series resistance.

• VRated is the RMS of rated line-line voltage.

• P is the three-phase real power required. If the value of the P input port is less than the value of the Minimum real power parameter, the block uses the minimum real power to calculate the resistance.

## Ports
