I am writing a technical document in LaTeX and it involves using ANSI Electrical symbols for transformer connections. The greek letter Delta work for using half of what I need, however I still require a way to write a Wye/Grounded-Wye symbol:

enter image description here

  • Perhaps tikz-circuit provides something like that symbol – user31729 Mar 28 '18 at 23:56
  • I checked tikz-circuit and there was only a Ground symbol, no Wye/Grounded-Wye – Under11Radar Mar 29 '18 at 0:07

The symbol can be drawn with TikZ (also LaTeX's environment picture could be used).

\documentclass[tikz]{standalone}
\begin{document}
  \tikz[x=1pt, y=1pt, scale=2]\draw
    (-1.8, 0) -- (1.8, 0)
    (-1.2, -1) -- (1.2, -1)
    (-0.6, -2) -- (0.6, -2)
    (0, 0) -- ++(0, 3) -- ++(2.5, 0) coordinate (tmp)
    -- +(0, -2)
    (tmp) +(45:2) -- (tmp) -- +(135:2)
  ;
\end{document}

Result

  • Perfect! To get exactly what worked for me, I was able to pull something together using this: '\tikz[x=1pt, y=1pt, scale=2]\draw (3, -1.8) -- (3, 1.8) (4, -1.2) -- (4, 1.2) (5, -0.6) -- (5, 0.6) (3, 0) -- (0, 0) coordinate (tmp) -- +(0, -3) (tmp) +(45:3) -- (tmp) -- +(135:3) ;' – Under11Radar Mar 29 '18 at 1:05
