Features and Improvements

  • File Formats: RAW file reading for version 34 is now more lenient and allows the use of whitespace as a field delimiter.
  • Transient Stability: Vfe is available for ESAC5A Exciter model.
  • Bug Fixes

    • Contingency Analysis: When loading a PTI CON file with contingency elements specified with WND for opening or closing a single winding of a three-winding transformer, the elements read after this entry could end up being incorrectly specified. This has been fixed.
    • Power Flow Solution: Fixed an access violation that would occur when loading a case with more than 8 buses in islands without generation attached to DC lines.
    • QV Curve Tool: When rerunning QV analysis delete all quantities to track even if not rerunning particular scenarios so that the values in the file will have consistent headers.
    • QV Curve Tool: QV results for Quantities to Track were not being stored in PWB files. This has been fixed.
    • QV Curve Tool: When rerunning QV analysis existing results should be overwritten when rerunning a scenario instead of creating multiple results for the same scenario. This has been fixed.
    • Transient Stability: Changed default parameters for VHVDC1 so that Iqmin2 and Iqmin3 are both negative values (as these should almost always be negative!).
    • Transient Stability: Fixed divide by zero when simulating VHVDC1 when Rdc = 0 in the power flow model and also L = 0 in the dynamic model.
