As I understand it:
High-leg delta is independent of open- or closed-delta.
Open delta uses two single-phase transformers primaries connected to
phases AB and BC. Secondaries are series-connected and 3-phase output
is taken from the high end of either secondary and the common connection.
Mostly a cost-savings measure as the efficiency isn't very good.
On high-leg, one of the secondaries is center-tapped and split
single-phase is fed from the center tap and either end of the secondary.
Said configuration can be a 3-winding full delta configuration or the
open-delta as detailed above.
