Features and Improvements

  • Auxiliary Files (SCRIPT and DATA Sections): There are now four new script commands associated with TimeStep Simulation, mostly to better support the PWW files.
    TIMESTEPDeleteAll(); // This is just like pressing Delete All from the Time Domain form
    TIMESTEPLoadPWW(filename : String); // This loads the pww, replacing any existing time step data
    TIMESTEPAppendPWW(filename : String); // This appends the pww to the existing time step data, but only works if the weather stations are the same
    TIMESTEPSavePWW(filename : String); // This saves the time step weather data in pww format.
  • Case Information Displays: In Case Information Displays the Plot Columns now allows just a subset of the rows to be plotted. If the user selects one row then all rows are plotted (as before); the new functionality is if more than one row is sleected then just those rows are plotted. The Column Plot dialog now also allows the plotted rows to be changed, with a button to easily select all.
  • Bug Fixes

    • Case Information Displays: The "Load MW IS" and "Load Mvar IS" fields with islands should return the nominal load of all loads in the island where the load status is closed but the bus status is disconnected. These fields were always returning 0. This has been fixed.
    • Time Step Simulation: Fixed bug assigning a subscription from AUX files in the time step tool. When saving and loading an AUX file with Sched Subscriptions from the time step tool, the field type (e.g. GenMW) was not being saved or loaded properly. This has been fixed.
