Sum of complex values through L1, L2 & L3 phases shall give u the complex value of current through neutral conductor. If u wanna calculate RMS value, you have to calculate from complex value for neutral current as:

sqrt(Re(In)^2+Im(In)^2)

this number u have to divide with sqrt(2) and that is RMS value of neutral current.
