- Positive and negative sequence impedance is dependent on the impedance of the line from the sending to the receiving end. This is different for zero sequence impedance wherein current flows through the conductor and return through the ground or cable sheath. Zero sequence impedance is also dependent on the self and mutual impedances to other.

- sequence fault impedance for an A phase to ground fault, according to C37-114 is: The k (or k 0) factor introduced in this formula is called the zero sequence compensation factor. The k factor is applied to the neutral current in the impedance calculation. This results in an impedance that is relative to the positive sequence impedance of the line
- If-0 = 0 (zero sequence network is not involved in Line to Line fault) By using sequence to phase matrix formula, we can get the values of fault current as, Fault current at phase A = 0. Fault current at phase B = 2.442 (angle 180) p

A three-wire overhead line has a zero-sequence impedance of (Smith, 1980): A special case is for a four-wire unigrounded circuit where the return current stays in the neutral, which has a zero-sequence impedance of (Ender et al., 1960 Usually the value for the zero sequence impedance for the overhead transmission line is about 3 times the values for the positive and negative sequence, and this is why the zero sequence impedance becomes larger as the fault is located further away from the transformer Sample zero sequence, generator and motor files for the network are given in Fig. 1.22. Line zero sequence impedances are assumed to be three times the positive sequence impedance values. Transformer zero sequence impedances are taken as equal to positive sequence values in this example for the vector groups used Fault voltage and current measurements at the sending-end of the line and analysis of the fault (causes and location are known in that previous cases) are used to obtain a value for the zero.

PTW uses the three-phase fault data and the single-line-to-ground fault data to calculate the positive, negative- and zero-sequence impedances. Solution: Double-check the three-phase fault data and the single-line-to-ground fault data entered in the Utility component editor. Most likely the single-line-to-ground fault data entered is too high Since there is no return path for the zero sequence current in the line, thus the impedance of the circuit becomes infinite.This infinite impedance is shown by the open circuit at point P in the single phase equivalent zero sequence network for a delta connected circuit with zero sequence impedance Z 0 ** Test Set - 2 - Power System - Analysis, Stability & Computer Technique - This test comprises 35 questions**.

- It shall also be noted that, for ungrounded system or isolated neutral system as there is no path for neutral current to flow, therefore the impedance seen by zero sequence current will be infinite (as only zero sequence current flows through the neutral) and hence the value of zero sequence component of fault current will be zero

** If the impedance is desired in actual ohms, the following formula can be used: To convert short circuit current to MVA: Where, V ll is the line-line voltage and V ln is the line-neutral voltage at which short circuit value is provided**. X/R Ratio Calculation. X/R ratio is the ratio of inductance to resistance of the power grid up to the point of. line impedance to the fault point is different between phases. The typical assumptions are that ZF is the same across all phases and the line impedances are equal, and therefore, the ZG term is neglected. For a three-phase fault, the positive-sequence network is used with the fault point connected back to the neutral bus, as shown in Fig. 2. N.

Line-‐to-‐Line Faults Thus, all the fault conditions are satisﬁed by connecting the positive-‐ and negative-‐sequence networks in parallel through impedance Zf as was shown. The zero-‐sequence network is inactive and does not enter into the line-‐to-‐line calculations Zero sequence can't change the line-to-line phasors because it shifts each line-to-neutral equally. All faults that produce ground current create a zero sequence potential difference that causes zero sequence or ground currents to flow. During faults, the zero sequence current can represent the tightness of the neutral to ground Note: the calculation of zero sequence impedance is complicated. Sheaths, armour, the soil, pipes, metal structures and other return paths all affect the impedance. Dependable values of zero-sequence impedance is best obtained by measurement on cables once installed. Symbols. d - geometric mean spacing (line to line), Note that the impedance to zero sequence is inﬁnite because the neutral is not connected back to the neutral of the voltage source. Thus the sum of line currents must always be zero and this in turn precludes any zero sequence current.

The zero sequence impedance depends upon the path taken by the zero sequence current. As this path is normally different from the path taken by the positive and negative sequence currents, therefore the zero sequence impedance is usually difference from positive or negative sequence impedance. Sequence Impedance of Power System Element With the available information on the positive-sequence impedance of the line, 'Z', the challenge is to find the value of the fault resistance 'R F ' and the current 'I F ' or to find a way to eliminate them from the equation. In the following section, the two most basic one-ended impedance-based fault location methods are discussed measuring I0p (the parallel line zero-sequence current) for fault location. d I. INTRODUCTION In transmission systems throughout the world, it is very common to find double-circuit towers transmitting power in narrow physical corridors. There are also places in power systems where single-circuit towers are run in parallel in wide corridors ** Since a reverse fault gives a negative-sequence impedance which is positive and a forward fault gives a negative-sequence impedance which is negative, Z2R is always set more positive than Z2F**. For practically every application, Z2F can be set for ‰ the positive-sequence impedance of the line and Z2R can be set equal to Z2F + 0.1 ohms

** better resistive fault coverage than zero-sequence current elements**. The negative-sequence impedance of a transmission line is significantly less than the zero-sequence impedance; thus, faults at the remote end of a long line typically have more negative-sequence current than zero-sequence current [4]. Advantage The zero sequence represents the component of the unbalanced phasors that is equal in magnitude and phase. Because they are in phase, zero sequence currents flowing through an n-phase network will sum to n times the magnitude of the individual zero sequence currents components Figure 1 shows a zero sequence infeed source on the protected line. The source is a constant zero sequence impedance source such as a grounding transformer providing only zero sequence current for ground faults. The source provides no positive or negative sequence current to any fault. An example is

Earth Fault Loop Impedance. Having obtained the source impedance components, the total loop impedance ( Z t ) and load end fault level ( I f) are given by: Z t = Z e + Z 1 + Z 0. I f = U / Z t. The earth fault loop impedance is simply the magnitude of Z t.. For common configurations, the maximum earth fault loop impedance is calculated (but can be overridden by the user) The book state that For the line-to-line voltages, the zero sequence should equal to zero. But I got a nonzero value for the zero sequence voltage. Maybe Smart are right. Maybe in the real world the value is not equal to zero, but at least the value should be almost zero.

For these systems, two major ground fault current magnitude-limiting factors are the zero-sequence line-to-ground capacitance and fault resistance.

Table 1: Summary of symmetrical components for different fault scenarios. The following points can be inferred from the above table. Balanced system operation or balanced 3-phase faults have positive sequence elements only. Any fault involving ground must have zero sequence elements. Negative sequence elements show up in unbalanced systems only Zero Sequence Impedance The impedance offered by the system to the flow of zero sequence current is known as zero sequence impedance. In previous fault calculation, Z 1, Z 2 and Z 0 are positive, negative and zero sequence impedance respectively. The sequence impedance varies with the type of power system components under consideration: 1 ELE B7 Slide # 27 Single Line-to-Ground (SLG) Faults zUnbalanced faults unbalance the network, but only at the fault location. This causes a coupling of the sequence networks. How the sequence networks are coupled depends upon the fault type The value of equipment grounding impedance is most critical when the system percent voltage drop is high. For example, for a 120-volt, 20-amp system, with 6% voltage drop, and 80-amp trip-current, the equipment grounding impedance must be no more than 0.2 ohms to hold the voltage to 30 volts Earth Fault In an earth fault, one phase is directly connected to earth (L1 to earth for example). To find the value of earth fault current at any point in a network, a sum is made of the earth fault impedances in the network between the source of supply (including source impedance) and the return path impedances. Use of Table

Sequence Impedance Data. Positive, negative and zero sequence impedance data is often available from manufacturers. A common assumption is that for non rotating equipment the negative sequence values are taken to be the same as the positive. Zero sequence impedance values are closely tied to the type of earthing arrangements and do vary with. 0 = the symmetrical rms zero sequence current. Vp = the phase-to-neutral driving voltage at the source. Rf = the resistance of the fault itself, assumed to be zero. Z 1 = the total positive sequence impedance. Z 2 = the total negative sequence impedance. Z 0 = the total zero sequence impedance. Therefore inserting the numerical data gives, R 1. Sequence diagrams for generators Key point: generators only produce positive sequence voltages; therefore only the positive sequence has a voltage source During a fault Z+ Z X d . The zero sequence impedance is usually substantially smaller. The value of Z n depends on whether the generator is grounde Since calculating series impedance for underground cables is not as simple as in the case of overhead lines, the paper proposes a methodology to obtain an estimation of zero-sequence impedance of underground cables starting from previous single-faults occurred in the system, in which an electric arc occurred at the fault location

In fact, with sinusoidally distributed three phase windings, the net flux at any point in the air gap is zero. Hence, zero sequence impedance is only a small % (0.1-0.7) of the positive sequence impedances a per-unit value (on the transformer rated line-to-line voltage), the impedance voltage is equivalent to the per-unit impedance, i.e. Zero sequence impedance test circuit for three-phase 2-winding transformer (with Tleis, N., Power Systems Modelling and Fault Analysis - Theory and Practice, Newnes, 2008 Source The positive, negative and zero sequence impedances of a three phase generator are $ Z_1Z_2 $ and $ Z_0 $ respectively.

If the saved case do not include sequence data you have to calculate the impedance yourself and enter the value (X0 + X2) as fault impedance Three phase fault is balanced fault which can also be analyzed using concept of symmetrical components.. Series faults are classified as: 1) One Open Conductor 2) Two Open Conductors These faults also disturb the symmetry and therefore these faults are unbalanced faults and hence shall be analyzed using concept of symmetrical components
