Features and Improvements

  • Difference Case Tool: Added a button to remove field customizations for all of the difference grids on the topological differences dialog.
  • Bug Fixes

    • Auxiliary Files (SCRIPT and DATA Sections): When using the SendToExcel script command and OLE error could result if not specifying the name of the worksheet. This has been fixed by assuming a default name based on the object type of the data being sent to Excel if the user doesn't specify a name.
    • Case Information Displays: When using the Close with Breakers option from a case information display or a oneline, it was assumed that only the chosen device should be closed in. It makes more sense to allow other devices to be closed. This is especially important in situations such as a generator connected to a transformer and the breaker is on the high side of the transformer. If we do not allow the transformer to be closed the generator cannot be closed.
    • Contingency Analysis: Made the local menu options for Contingency case information display consistent whether it is displayed in the Model Explorer or on the contingency analysis dialog.
    • Contingency Analysis: Made corrections to properly retain the AGC method in use during a contingency solution with the reference state if a contingency solution is then manually set as the new contingency reference state.
    • File Formats: When writing to an EPC file, added a space between the from bus nominal voltage and the to bus number for breaker records to prevent long bus numbers from running into the from bus nominal voltage.
    • Oneline Diagrams: The small Color Key dialog for the contouring of a oneline can be made transparent. The option to "Remove Transparency from all Windows" however would not remove the transparency from this particular small window. This has been fixed.
    • Transient Stability: Fixed potential error that could occur after showing a group of plots in transient stability and then choosing to show them again.
