Default Open vs. Closed Delta

What are the relationships between phases of voltage and current?

For Closed Delta it's
phase to phase voltage = line voltage
phase to phase current = line current x sq. rt. of 3

For Open Delta, shouldn't it be the same?

Also, I can't find phasors of their comparison. Does anyone have a pic they could post?

Haha, that's awesome. That's exactly how I would imagine it to look.
