Features and Improvements

  • Available Transfer Capability (ATC) Tool: When storing ATC Extra Monitor flow values in the base case for use when estimating extra monitor flows at various transfer levels when using the iterated ATC methods, an extra flow value will now be included when contingencies are being iterated on at the base case transfer level at which the contingency last solved.
  • Power Flow Solution: Added option to "Use Loss Factor For DC Line tielines". This will use the two-terminal DC line aLoss term to assign the metered point a fraction of the way along a two-terminal DC line. This term was always maintained previously but not used in the solution. This feature is supported in EPC files but not RAW files. PowerWorld Simulator now has a global option regarding whether to use this Loss Factor. When not using the Loss Factor (aLoss) we will default back to the MeteredEnd specification instead.
