Features and Improvements

  • Case Information Displays: Now string grids allow entering via movement from one of the arrow keys or page up or page down.
  • Oneline Diagrams: Clicking on a link in an Allstom oneline now uses the Oneline Browsing Path to search for onelines to link to. The path specification is searched in order, from top to bottom. If a matching oneline isn't found within the Oneline Browsing Path, it returns to the old method of searching through the path of the oneline that contains the link that was clicked.
  • Transient Stability: Added a new model DC line model CHVDC2. This model includes the simulation the RLC circuit of a 2-terminal DC line in the transient stability environment.
  • Bug Fixes

    • Auxiliary Files (SCRIPT and DATA Sections): Modified new @MODELFIELD special string feature so that it could be used in a script command when specifying a filename. Simulator was calling this an illegal filename because of the < and > characters which are not valid characters in a Windows filename. These characters are removed when executing the command though so this error should have been skipped.
    • Auxiliary Files (SCRIPT and DATA Sections): fixed error in SaveData() script command introduced in September 28, 2016 patch which caused an access violation.
    • Case Information Displays: Fixed bug in All Display Objects table where ID1 field was displaying the device number for bus, gen, load and shunt objects as a hexadecimal number instead of an integer
    • File Formats: We were seeing more RAW files that had records with missing fields at the end of records. We modified to gracefully handle this and assign default values for these fields.
