Bug Fixes

  • Distributed Computation: Added the SimAuto Service; this service enables a machine to enforce a cap on the number of SimAuto instances that can be used concurrently, so multiple Distributed clients sharing a pool of computational resources can't collectively overwhelm the machine with SimAuto instances. It can be installed, started, and configured through the DistCompCfg utility. The new Limit and Limit Enforced fields in the Distributed Computer list are populated during Machine Verification to indicate what cap is set on each remote machine, and if the service is running to enforce it.
  • Scheduled Actions: Added support in the PowerWorld Outage CSV for two new columns: "Disable" and "Comment". They are applicable to both Actions and Action Groups; if a row has YES in the Disable column, it Simulator will not import it (if an Action, just that action; if a Group, the Group and all actions in it are disabled). Any text in the Comment column will be loaded into the Comment field of the applicable Action or Action Group.
  • Transient Stability: When a Plot was set to automatically appear upon execution of the transient stability simulation, the auto-sizing of vertical axis was not working properly. This has been fixed.
