I'm looking for some help regarding an issue with a Star delta motor/ starter.

To give some background to this I was asked to re-terminate a motor that had been disconnected and replaced with a new one by a mechanical team.

I had originally terminated the star side of the motor as per usual (U1=L1 V1=L2 W1=L3) however this caused the motor to run in reverse.

So I then swapped the L1 & L3 phases to allow the motor to run to the correct rotation. (U1=L3 V1=L2 W1=L1).

This worked so I then altered the Delta side of the motor accordingly (U2=L1 V2=L3 W2= L1) However this caused the MCB in the panel to trip on change-over from Star to Delta.

My question is

1)Is the above wiring/ modification correct? If not, how would I need to modify it.

New here?
