Features and Improvements

  • File Formats: Several years ago, we modified reading the CB record so that if the TYPE field existed, then we would use that to determine whether a branch was a breaker, disconnect, etc. from this field. This was fine, but we then also modified so that we stored the "EMSCBTyp" string of the branch as this value. This was causing trouble when reading the RAS and Contingency records because the proper identifier for use in linking elements of RAS and Contingency records is to use the CBTyp.ID which had been lost by the changes made several years ago. This new patch will continue using the TYPE field to determine what type of a device the CB is, however the field EMSCBTyp will now always be populated with CBTyp.ID
  • Bug Fixes

    • Auxiliary Files (SCRIPT and DATA Sections): Fixed a bug that was preventing to link controllable fixed shunts with an svc when using scripts commands Data section.
