Core dynamics of a three phase transformer

No. Due to the dynamics of the magnetix flux within the three legged core, two of the incoming phase conductor currents will be similar and the third will be typically 40 to 60% higher than the other two. This does not negatively impact the Transformer in any way, rather it is simply the normal state of an unloaded three coil, three legged core Transformer.
