  12. What are some advantages of three-phase power
    over single-phase power
    • Generators operate more efficiently and have better regulation

    The current flowing in one winding of a DELTA-connected transformer are less than the current flowing on the one phase of the line supplying the bank
  37. True/False

    Bank ammeters read the phase current of the circuit.
  38. One of the benefits of a DELTA system is that one phase of a three phase bank can be removed and operated                . The capacity of the bank is reduced to approximately              ; however, the three-phase system can continue to operate.
