Features and Improvements

  • Auxiliary Files (SCRIPT and DATA Sections): Modified the a script command to have an additional optional parameter
    SetSensitivitiesAtOutOfServiceToClosest("FilterName", BranchDistMeas);
    The new parameter BranchDistMeas follows the same syntax as the DeterminePathDistance command parameter with the same name. It has options of X, Z, Length, Nodes, or "VariableName". If the BranchDistMeas parameter is omitted then the old behavior of taking the closest nodes based on the number of nodes away and averaging the value will be used.
  • Auxiliary Files (SCRIPT and DATA Sections): Modified the CalculateShiftFactors() in the same way. It now has parameters as follows with the BranchDistMeas a new optional paramter.
    CalculateShiftFactors([flow element], direction, [transactor], LinearMethod, SetOutOfServiceBuses, filter, AbortOnError, BranchDistMeas)
  • File Formats: Added support for "XFMR" ActionObjectType entries in PowerWorld Outage CSV format. The corresponding ActionObjectLabel field should either be the Label of a 3WTransformer, or a string in the format "[SubName]_XFMR_[EMSLineID]" which will create actions for all XF elements with the corresponding SubName and EMSLineID
  • Bug Fixes

    • Oneline Diagrams: When loading an AXD file in a oneline diagram with many unlinked buses or substations, the process could be very slow due to attempting to anchor at the end of the AXD load. This speed of this process has been greatly increased.
