    Hello everyone.

    I have a simple question involving 3 phase energy systems. Is it possible to change a Y 3 phase generator into a triangle 3 phase generator? If so, how?

    The term is delta.;)

    You can change a Y to a delta only if both connections to all three windings are available separately at the generator terminal. In that case you can remove the common Y connection and connect them as a Delta. If they are tied together internally to make the Y, then you can't.
