Motors Wire Configuration-Star or Delta:

Star or Y Connection

For a motor with terminal markings as W1, U1, V1 and W2, U2, V2 respectively, proceed as follows:

Short-circuit the terminals W2, U2 and V2 and connect the mains to the W1, U1 and V1 to get a star(Y)-connection. See diagram below:

Delta(Δ) Connection

When connecting the end of a phase to the start of another phase you get a delta(Δ)-connection. Connect W2 to U1, U2 to V2, V1 to W1 as shown below:
