Features and Improvements

  • Auxiliary Files (SCRIPT and DATA Sections): An interface element will meet the area/zone filter if its interface meets the area/zone filter. Previously, an interface element would meet the area/zone filter if its individual device met the area/zone filter. This could cause situations that could re-define an interface if interface elements are missing when this information was loaded from an aux file. It makes more sense to keep all of the interface elements as long as at least one of the elements meets the area/zone filter. An interface will meet the area/zone filter if at least one of its elements meets the area/zone filter. This is the way that area/zone filtering has always worked for interfaces.
  • Transient Stability: Modified WT3G, WT4G, REG_A, PVD1 type model that have "reactive current management" that prevent high voltages on voltage source converter machine models. Previously if the initial terminal voltage was above the high voltage limit, we would ignore this limit completely. This has been modified so that instead the high voltage limit is set equal to the initial terminal voltage. Indication that this is occuring will appear in the Validation Warnings.
  • Bug Fixes

    • Transient Stability: Fixed a bug that was not letting the script commands to get the results from hard drive when no results in RAM were available
