Features and Improvements

  • Auxiliary Files (SCRIPT and DATA Sections): Recently an option was added when reading PTI RAW files to allow the user to specify how to handle duplicates of devices in the RAW data; to keep only the last entry of each duplicate device, or to keep all duplicate devices by dynamically updating the IDs of each to make them all unique in the load flow data. This option was previously only available through the user interface when choosing to open a RAW file with options. Now the option has also been added to the OpenCase script command in the option set that applies to PTI file types. The option was added as a third parameter in the PTI option set, and is named HowToKeepDuplicates. The two options you can set are LAST or ALL, which correspond to keeping only the last duplicate of each device, or to keep all duplicates of each device and make them unique.
  • Bug Fixes

    • General: When pasting buses with the create new object option, a new bus is created that is higher than the highest bus number in the case. This wasn't working properly and is now fixed.
    • PV and QV Curve (PVQV) Tool: When running QV analysis on a full topology case, errors and access violations could occur if a contingency or base case did not solve and fake generators were used to try to make them solvable. An access violation could also occur if clicking the Stop button to abort a run. All of these problems have been fixed.
