Features and Improvements

  • Auxiliary Files (SCRIPT and DATA Sections): With PWCaseInformation ObjectType added CountContingency field to show the total number of defined contingencies.
  • Auxiliary Files (SCRIPT and DATA Sections): When choosing to Save to AUX on the Simulator Options Dialog, added a dialog that has check-boxes on it so you may choose which types of options to save. The choices are Solution, Environment, Simulation, Case Info, Custom Colors, Areva Import Label Specs, and Oneline Browser Custom Menu.
  • Bug Fixes

    • Optimal Power Flow (OPF): When using the minimum control change objective function in the OPF, if the control had an initial condition that was a negative value, then the V-shaped cost function was being centered around 0.00 so that the control variable would prefer to be at 0.000. This had been done for Generator MW output many years ago, but probably should not have been done even for those. For phase-shifting transformer control variables however, this did not make sense. It has been corrected so that all control variables have a V-shaped cost curve with the minimum cost at the present operating point.
