Features and Improvements

  • Auxiliary Files (SCRIPT and DATA Sections): While using the SaveCase script command, the PWB extension is now appended correctly to the saved file name, even when the "filename" variable in the script command does not contain the extension
  • GIC: Added ability to manage multiple GIC efield events.
  • GIC: In Time Step simulation allow the state to be stored when doing just a GIC solution; also fixed bud with Time Step Playback dialog when there are either no playback values or the dialog is closed while playing results.
  • Oneline Diagrams: Added ability from the Oneline Options to quickly change the fill color of the base objects (with the filled states an example). The button to do the change is right below the background color field.
  • Bug Fixes

    • Security Constrained OPF (SCOPF) Tool: When using the DC approximation and running a SCOPF solution, if you have either no contingencies specified, or all active contingencies do not make any changes to the reference state, then the SCOPF would calculate control sensitivities incorrectly and the SCOPF solution did not work. An odd situation, but Simulator will now properly calculate control sensitivities under these conditions.
