Transmission Lines (Negative Sequence Network) The same model as the positive-sequence network is used for transmission lines inasmuch as the positive-sequence and negative-sequence impedances of transmission lines are the same

Short Circuit Calculations IIEE Presentation

Transmission Lines (Zero Sequence Network) The zero-sequence network model for a transmission line is the same as that of the positive- and negative-sequence networks. The sequence impedance of the model is of course the zero-sequence impedance of the line. This is normally higher than the positive- and negative-sequence impedances because of the influence of the earthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resistivity and the ground wire/s.
