    I saw many types of 3-phase power transformers such as: delta/Wye or Wye/Wye or Wye/delta also a transformer can include many primary and secondary coils for each phase not just one primary coil and one secondary coil.
    I know how a transformer works but I wonder why there is too many types of transformers as I explained above !

    Would you suggest me a free book or website that explains in details the types of power transformers, please ? I googled on the internet but I found poor results.

    Search for 3 Phase transformer theory?

    Google really is your friend!

    It is not just about transformers, it is also about rectifying systems. I have an old Motorola rectifier manual that has a, "Poly Phase" section in it. This is my "go to" book for questions on Delta/Wye transformers and rectifiers.
