The positive, negative and zero sequence impedances of a three phase generator are Z1, Z2 and Z0 respectively. For a line-to-line fault with fault impedance Zf, the fault current is If1 = kIf, where If is the fault current with zero fault impedance. The relation between Zf and k is
A
$${Z_f} = {{\left( {{Z_1} + {Z_2}} \right)\left( {1 - k} \right)} \over k}$$
B
$${Z_f} = {{\left( {{Z_1} + {Z_2}} \right)\left( {1 + k} \right)} \over k}$$
C
$${Z_f} = {{\left( {{Z_1} + {Z_2}} \right)k} \over {1 - k}}$$
D
$${Z_f} = {{\left( {{Z_1} + {Z_2}} \right)k} \over {1 + k}}$$

The positive, negative and zero sequence reactances of a wye-connected synchronous generator are 0.2 pu, 0.2 pu, and 0.1 pu, respectively. The generator is on open circuit with a terminal voltage of 1 pu.
