The results of the analysis of zero-sequence currents flowing in generator neutral and at ground-fault location during the generator normal operation and during ground-faults in the stator windings are presented. The influence of different methods of grounding the generator neutral on these currents in the primary circuits for different parameters of generators, transformers and additional capacitance to ground of the generator breakers was determined. This influence was analyzed for generators with ungrounded neutral, for generators with the resistance in neutral and for generators with ground-fault neutralizer (GFN) grounding the generator neutral. The analysis has been done for real resistance of the breakdown channel during ground-faults along the whole length of generator stator winding. It has been found that the applied method of grounding the generator neutral, the parameters of generator and transformer, the additional capacitance to ground of the generator breakers, level of fault resistance and ground-fault location have a substantial influence on currents flowing in the generator neutral and at ground-fault location in the breakdown channel in the main insulation of a generator stator winding
