Features and Improvements

  • File Formats: Can now read version 34 RAW files.
  • Scheduled Actions: Added options to the Scheduled Action grid local menu allowing the user to isolate or energize the target device with breakers.
  • Transient Stability: Added VFE of ESAC8b_PTI into the State Other Fields.
  • Bug Fixes

    • Auxiliary Files (SCRIPT and DATA Sections): When reading an AUX file containing a list of script commands, Simulator will now force windows to process any screen, keyboard, or mouse actions after each script command occurs. This ensures that the message log continues to be updated.
    • Auxiliary Files (SCRIPT and DATA Sections): Fixed bug where buses with numbers <= 0 could be read and created from an AUX file. Now buses must have a number > 0, or it will be ignored.
    • Case Information Displays: Fixed behavior of navigation using arrow keys so that it is consistent with Excel.
    • Contingency Analysis: An access violation could occur during contingency analysis when injection group actions using the Best Fit Open scaling option are triggered. This has been fixed.
    • Fault Analysis: Fixed bug auto inserting faults where two buses at the same voltage level with the same name EXCEPT for a space in the middle (i.e. MY BUS and MYBUS) would result in one of the two buses not being included in the fault list. These are now treated as two different buses.
    • File Formats: Fixed bug where reading PWB would crash if a Substation was stored in the PWB file that had a bus in its bus list with a number of 0. A 0 bus number shouldn't happen, but somehow it did.
    • File Formats: When reading an EPC file, fixed a bug that was creating Multi-terminal DC lines without a unique record name.
    • Scheduled Actions: When reading Start/End times in the scheduled action tool, the time format "11/20/2017 12:30" in military time was being interpreted an AM time. This only impacted times between 12:00 - 12:59. This has been fixed.
    • Transient Stability: Fixed a bug that was causing an access violation when saving REECA1 model to a DYR file.
    • Transient Stability: Added device ID to DistRelay messages.
    • Transient Stability: Fixed a bug that was preventing the loading of user defined model DLL files.
