Features and Improvements

  • File Formats: Modified reading the RAW file bus records so the ONLY required entries now are number and name. If omitted the NomVolt, IDE, Area, Zone, and Owner will now all default to 1. For version 24 - 30, G and B will be 0.0.
  • Transient Stability: Modified GP3 relay to only work with generators which have synchronous machine models
  • Transient Stability: Added support for governor model BBGOV1
  • Transient Stability: Added support for governor model TURCZT
  • Transient Stability: Added support for CELIN Exciter
  • Transient Stability: Modified the over and under frequency relay in GP3 to use rotor speed isntead as per NERC specification document on GP3.
  • Bug Fixes

    • Contingency Analysis: When using the CTGConvertAllToDeviceCTG script command or using the option in the GUI to Convert to Device Contingencies, three debug files were being written. These files will no longer be written.
    • Oneline Diagrams: When copying a display object of a generator on a oneline, and choosing to Copy "Object and Record", an access violation would occur. This has been field.
    • Transient Stability: For generator machine models that are used to model an induction motor, if the saturation parameters E1 and E2 were both entered as zero and error would occur. This has been fixed so that in this situation we simply assume no saturation.
    • Transient Stability: When a ModBase was specified for svsmo3 that was not equal to the SystemBase, then the voltage compensation was not operating properly. The impedances Xc0, Xc1, etc are given on the MVABase of the parameter ModBase but this was not being handled properly. The feedback of the current compensations was not scaling values properly to account for the Xc0 terms being given on the ModBase. This has been fixed.
