In my experience, the zero sequence of transformers is not calculated, it is directly tested following ANSII/IEEE guidlines for Z1no, Z2no, and Z1ns tests (for three phase, three winding transformers). Rough estimations of zero sequence impedance can be determined based on the positive sequence and core form of the transformer. A Shell type core will have a zero sequence of ~100% the positive sequence because the flux stays in the core / follows the same path as it does for positive sequence currents. For a core type, the zero sequence will be ~80-90% typically, because the flux must travel outside the core. This is for three winding transformer.

yes. A zero common difference represents a constant sequence.

These are called the second differences. If they are all the same (non-zero) then the original sequence is a quadratic.

If the first two numbers are 0, 1 or -1 (not both zero) then you get an alternating Fibonacci sequence.

Goemetric sequence : A sequence is a goemetric sequence if an/an-1is the same non-zero number for all natural numbers greater than 1. Arithmetic sequence : A sequence {an} is an arithmetic sequence if an-an-1 is the same number for all natural numbers greater than 1.

Zero sequence is part of symmetrical components; it's a way of looking at three phase power that simplifies the math involved. In general zero sequence current is synonymous with ground fault current.

If the neutral point is not earthed than the zero sequence current will not have any return path.It will be an open circuit for the zero sequence circuit.

Zero sequence impedance indicates a homopolar symmetrical component. It is a term used in electrical engineering within a three-phase system of linear combinations.

at first what is zero sequence current.. Zero sequence currents, in simple terms, are those found in the neutral conductor. They include the unbalanced 50 Hz currents and the 3rd, 9th, 15th and other triplen harmonic currents. Zero sequence currents appear in the neutral because they do not cancel in the way that 50Hz currents cancel. This is due to the fact that the zero sequence component on one phase is always in phase with the zero sequence components of the other 2 phases. we can say 50 Hz current on one phase, on the other hand, is always 120° out of phase with the other phases 50 Hz current which causes their balanced portions to cancel in the neutral. now, any method of ground current sensing involves detecting zero sequence currents. For solidly grounded systems, connecting the phase current transformers together with a common return allows measurement of zero sequence current in the common lead, if there is no neutral load current. The vector sum of the phase currents is equal to the zero sequence ground current. Under normal load conditions, the vector sum of the three phase currents is near zero. It is not exactly zero as the system capacitive charging current of the load circuit is non-zero. but it is limited value..if it is beyond the limit this zero sequence CT take care of it. All phase conductors are passed through the window of a single CT referred to as a zero sequence CT. Under normal circumstances, the three phase currents will sum to zero resulting in an output of zero from the zero sequence CT's secondary. If one of the phases were shorted to ground, the sum of the phase currents would no longer equal zero causing a current to flow in the secondary of the zero sequence CT. This current would be detected by the relay as a ground fault. Regards, Balaji K APL, Ahmedabad

In symmetrical components, there are three types of impedances - positive sequence (balanced), negative sequence (unbalanced), and zero sequence (ground). In a transformer, positive and negative are equal. Ground impedance is determined by the (same factors as the) positive sequence and is based on the flux paths available through the transformer core that can induce ground current.
