The power consumed in delta connected load is considered as √3/ VL. IL with power factor as unity. The power measured by the watt meter also confirms this value. But analysis indicate that the power consumed by a load in delta connection is 18.75% more than what is normally believed. This unaccounted power may be getting unknowingly booked to reduce efficiencies of loads and systems.
