In all the Industry I worked in we didnt use what you mentioned or any open delta etc. However I did design the first Corner Grounded Delta ever used at our large Navy complex and the electricians got all excited tellin me one phase was dead since it measured 0 volts to which I responed YES IT BETTER because its dead grounded in that one corner !!!!

I ran into one of those systems in a small
commercial garage in Aberdeen md. 3 wires in what looked like a single phase breaker box,
2 wires on the normally hot posts ,the third
on the neutral . measured 240 across any two. Thought this is odd, followed the service cable (2wire with wraped neutral) outside, it's connected to a triplex (2 insulated and a bare neutral), followed it several pole spans down the street to a pole with 3 small transformers. That was the first I had seen that ,and I don't remember that set up from college.

In college we didnt get into corner grounded Deltas, thats something I discovered years later and based on my preference for a grounded versus a floating system.

There was a lot of ungrounded delta put in industrial plants in the 50s. Most of it has been replaced.

TRUE even in the 30's through the 60's many industrical plants used non grounded straight Delta but that has went out of favor for the same reasons I didnt like it either, I just preferred grounded systems and still do.

I think it was about the time distribution changed from 2400 delta to 12477 or 4160 Wye. There is still a little 2400 around here in the smaller communities.
