Wye start, Delta run...
Was reading a closed thread that had this discussion and I would like to bring it back up again.
Some had mentioned that in a wye configuration the torque of the motor would be less due to the fact that the windings are seeing less voltage than in a Delta config ( ie soft start equip)
My understanding is that In a Wye config..the torque would be greater, since in this configuration the current would be greater due to the Wye config, then when motor is up to speed it is then changed to a delta since less power is now needed during running conditions, would this be correct?
