What does SImulator/Retriever check when validating a case?

Validation checks for both errors that would prevent a case from working properly and for abnormal setup of model objects. Validation errors and warnings are displayed in the Message Log. A sampling of the tasks performed during case validation include:

  • Ensures there is a system slack bus assigned
  • Ensures the slack bus has an attached generator
  • Ensures that no generator is assigned to remotely regulate the slack bus
  • Checks for buses having multiple controllable devices attached (i.e. switched shunts)
  • Checks all max/min enterable fields to ensure that the max value is greater than the min value
