New features of EMTP-RV 2.2.1

What’s new in version 2.2.1?

  1. Full compatibility with Vista.
  2. New documentation system including new navigation features.
  3. Various improvements and additions to models.
    The data handling features for numerous models have been simplied to allow for easier loading with separately calculated data.
  4. New capability to store complete circuits in libraries.
    - A circuit appearing in a library folder now becomes listed in the library Parts,
    - Palette and can be dragged and dropped into a design just like standard parts. This is a very powerful feature that provides easy access to user circuits and allows you to maintain more complex models through libraries.
  5. Subcircuits are now given the Model or Physical attribute in the Subcircuit Info menu.
    - A model subcircuit is primarily intended to dene the operation of the device represented by its parent symbol.
    - A physical subcircuit is primarily used to contain some of the system.
    - The devices inside the subcircuit represent actual physical elements of the system.
    - The physical subcircuit may contain Model subcircuits.
    - This distinction allows propagating computed data into Physical subcircuits for visualization purposes.
  6. Several new scripting methods, including dynamic modication of device symbol using a separately stored symbol drawing.
  7. New and improved ScopeView package.

A new HVDC benchmark (for 50 Hz and 60 Hz networks) originally developed by Professor Vijay Sood (University of Ontario Institute of Technology) is now available upon request.
This work was prepared in collaboration with Sébastien Dennetière (Électricité de France) and École Polytechnique de Montréal.
