Features and Improvements

  • File Formats: When reading a DYD file and encountering a / character at the end of a line this indicates that the record continues reading on the next line of of the DYD file. A particular DYD file record should terminate on a line that does NOT end in a / character. Sometimes however, DYD files are edited manually and an errant / character is added. This patch does not change how we read this (the file is messed up), but additional warning messages have been added in this case if the following line of text has a valid model type.
  • Bug Fixes

    • Power Flow Solution: A shunt that is part of a Voltage Control Group will not move if its terminal bus is being regulated by a generator on AVR, its regulated bus is being regulated by a generator on AVR, or its terminal bus is also connected to a generator on AVR. This fixes a bug that causes a shunt in a control group to move when the control group is set to FORCEON even though there is a generator that directly conflicts with the regulation range of the switched shunt.
