Here, we will find phase voltages VAN, VBN, and VCN, shown in the following figure, using Matlab.

By applying KVL, we come up with the following three equations:

$\begin{matrix}   110\angle {{0}^{o}}=(1+j1){{I}_{1}}+(5+j12){{I}_{1}} & \cdots  & (1)  \\   110\angle -{{120}^{o}}=(1-j2){{I}_{2}}+(3+j4){{I}_{2}} & \cdots  & (2)  \\   110\angle {{120}^{o}}=(1-j0.5){{I}_{3}}+(5-j12){{I}_{3}} & \cdots  & (3)  \\\end{matrix}$

After simplifying above equations, we have

$\begin{matrix}   110\angle {{0}^{o}}=(6+j13){{I}_{1}} & \cdots  & (4)  \\   110\angle -{{120}^{o}}=(4+j2){{I}_{2}} & \cdots  & (5)  \\   110\angle {{120}^{o}}=(6-j12.5){{I}_{3}} & \cdots  & (6)  \\\end{matrix}$

Let’s put the above three equations in matrix form,

$\left[ \begin{matrix}   6+j13 & 0 & 0  \\   0 & 4+j2 & 0  \\   0 & 0 & 6-j12.5  \\\end{matrix} \right]\left[ \begin{matrix}   {{I}_{1}}  \\   {{I}_{2}}  \\   {{I}_{3}}  \\\end{matrix} \right]=\left[ \begin{matrix}   110\angle {{0}^{o}}  \\   110\angle -{{120}^{o}}  \\   110\angle {{120}^{o}}  \\\end{matrix} \right]$

Now, we can write the above matrix as:

\[\left[ Z \right]\left[ I \right]=\left[ V \right]\]

From above, we can easily calculate unknown currents using:


And for the phase voltages:

\[\begin{matrix}   \begin{align}  & {{V}_{AN}}=(5+j12){{I}_{1}} \\ & {{V}_{BN}}=(3+j4){{I}_{2}} \\ & {{V}_{CN}}=(5-j12){{I}_{3}} \\\end{align} & \cdots  & (7)  \\\end{matrix}\]

Now, it’s time to write Matlab code to find out the phase voltages using the above formulas.
