When I pasted in (or imported from an aux file) information for a generator record, the AGC field changed to “NO”. Why is this occurring and how do I correct it?
This is an option on the Environment tab of the Solution/Environment Options dialog.
If a value is pasted in for Gen MW, then Simulator assumes that you desire to have Gen MW specified. As a result, Simulator automatically sets the AGC field for that machine to “NO.” Additionally, when importing data either from an aux file, or from a spreadsheet application, Simulator updates each field in the order it was received. The consequence of this is that even if you set the AGC field to “YES”, but subsequently specify a value for the Gen MW field, Simulator sets AGC back to “NO”.
There are a number of methods to retain the AGC field as “YES” when pasting or importing Gen MW values:
- Manually set the AGC option back to YES after pasting the record, or
- Include an AGC column after the Gen MW column in the pasted data with the value set to “YES”, or
- Select Options >> Solution/Environment from the Simulator Main Menu. On the Environment tab uncheck the box marked “Disable AGC When Manually Changing Generator MW.”
