1.5 Basic Application Procedure

Figure 1.5-1 “NRSCP” application main steps

In the System & Data Management Tool “NRSCP”, 2 modes are optional to realize the simulation
calculation. In the above figure, the left branch is the “Traditional Simulation Calculation Mode”
and the right branch is the “Project Management Calculation Mode”.
In case of the first use of “NRSCP”, please set relative parameters of the “Simulation Setting” (To
set the directory of relative programs, please refer to “Chapter 3 Simulation Setting”) and the "File
open setting" (To set the opening method of each file, please refer to “Chapter 4 File Open
Setting”).
The operation is simple if the “Traditional Simulation Calculation Mode” is adopted. We only
need to open a file in case folder and set power flow file, transient parameter file, TSC fault file for
the case power flow and transient stability calculation could be done and the calculation result

NANJING NARI-RELAYS ELECTRIC CO., LTD. 7

could be accessed.
The case files can be managed more effectively if the “Project Management Calculation Mode”
is adopted, and the analysis process is more clearly.

Chapter 5 NRSCP Project Management

5.1 Overview

“Project Management”:
Here, project is a concept to manage system operation cases, case model parameters and
calculation results.

l Each project may include various operation cases; each case consists of system data and
relative result files. Project files (such as “Project control report", "Project CCT report",
"Project log file" ) are shared by all cases.

l Each project corresponds to a folder; each case corresponds to a subfolder in the project
folder.

l Project files locate in the project folder, case files locates in the case folders.

Open the power flow file with the System & Data Management Tool “NRSCP”, power flow can be
calculated after the case files setting is done.

Ø TSC Power Flow

TSC power flow requires the correct setup of “TSC Settings” in the menu “Simulation Setting”, in
addition, option “TSC” shall be chosen in the menu “Computational Application”.

After power flow calculation, the result will be shown in the child windows “Log” in “Output
Window”. If the calculation result of power flow does not achieve convergence, a note “!!!

² Transient Stability

The following case files are necessary for transient stability simulation calculation: the power flow
file, the transient parameter file, and the TSC fault file.

Multi fault groups can be defined in the TSC fault file, and the output of transient stability
calculation is also definable.

Run the submenu “ ” of the menu “ ” on the “Main Menu” to start simulation

6.2 Project Management Calculation Mode

6.2.1 Case Calculation


There are two methods to achieve case calculation:

Ø In the project view, right click on the case name to pop up the menu, and choose the
submenu “Case Calculation” to start calculation, as shown below:

Figure 6.2-1 How to select menu “Case Calculation”

Ø Open the case file in the project view, then to start the calculation through the menu
“Calculation” of file view.

In the traditional simulation mode (when project view is not applied), “Case Files Setting” shall be
done before the calculation, while in the project management calculation mode, the “Case Files
Setting” of all the cases will be automatically maintained. Therefore, for the data files of cases
opened in the project view, there is no need to perform “Case Files Setting” and calculation can
be started directly by the menu “ on the “Main Menu”.

After the calculation is started, it will be noted in the child window “Log“ of output window. The
calculation started in project view will be twinkling in the project view, and the related calculation
result shown in the output window will be stored in the log file of the project.

6.2.2 Project Calculation


Project calculation shall be launched in the project view. Right click on the project name to pop up
the menu, then choose the submenu “Project Calculation“ to start project calculation.

A project calculation will perform calculation to all the cases of which the “Statement“ is marked as
“Auto“. If none of the statement of the cases is marked as “Auto“ in the project, the menu “Project
Calculation“ will not be available.

² In the following conditions, the cases marked “Auto” will not be calculated in project
calculation:

Ø The power flow file of case is empty;

Ø As for ”Transient Stability”, ”Transient Control” and ”Transient CCT”, the stability file of
case (.SWI) is empty while the stability file of project is empty.

² Notes about calculation:

Ø To start a calculation process, there are various methods as ”Project Calculation”, ”Case
Calculation” or the menu ”Calculation” of the ”Main Menu”;

Ø In the System & Data Management Tool “NRSCP”, it is not allowed to launch multiple
processes of “TSC” calculation. The restraint is achieved by disabling the menu used for
starting calculation;

Ø During a calculation process, it can be ceased by the submenu “Stop”. However, for each
method there is a related submenu “Stop”, and only the corresponding submenu can cease
the calculation process.

6.2.3 Browse the Calculation Result

² Browse Simulation Curve.

Ø First of all, “Simulation Setting” needs to be properly set to confirm the path of transient
stability simulation curve program (the operating sequence is “Simulation Setting” -> “TSC
Setting”-> “NRVCurve.exe”);

Ø To browse the simulation curve, double click the .STD format simulation result file in the
directory of the case, or right click on the .STD format file and choose the submenu “Start

Chapter 8 Instruction about Format Definition Files


of Power Flow Data & Transient Data
Format definition files of system data are stored in folder of “FormatSettings” and specific
instructions are shown as below.

8.1 Comment

A line started with symbol of '.' or '//' is comment. For example:

//******card definition instruction******//

':' – start symbol of card definition line.

8.2 Definition Line of Card Type/Name

Definition line of card type/name is started with symbol of “:” and the format is shown as below:

“:” + “Card type” + “,” + “Card name” + “,”

For example:

: Case, case card,

: LS (1), “3-phase fault”,

8.3 Definition Line of Card Format

l The format is shown as below:

“From” + “,” + “To” + “,” + “Form” + ”,” + “IC” + ”,” + “IW” + “,”+ “Statement” + ”,”

Ø “From”

Starting column of each item in card (the first column is fixed at 1);

Ø “To”

End column of each item in card (data of end column is also included in the item. If length of one
item is 1 and starting column is 5, the end column of the item shall be 5)

Ø “Form”

Format and length of item (decimal is included in float value).

A- character string (e.g. A10 is a 10-charater string);

NANJING NARI-RELAYS ELECTRIC CO., LTD. 65


Chapter8 Instruction about Format Definition Files of Power Flow Data & Transient Data

I- integer (e.g. I3 is a 3 length integer);

F- float value (e.g. F5.2 is a 5 length float value with 1 decimal. If no decimal point exists in the
value, the latter two bits shall be the decimal part. However, if decimal point exists in the value, the
instruction of format becomes invalid).

Ø “IC”

Control symbol; e.g.

‘>=’: More than or equivalent to a value;

‘<=’: Less than or equivalent to a value;

‘>’: More than a value;

‘<’: Less than a value;

‘=’: Equivalent to a value or a string;

‘<>’: Include the string or space character;

‘><’: Must be empty or space;

‘!=’: Nonequivalent to a value or a string; nonequivalent to zero or not empty when “IW” is empty;

Ø “IW”

Control word, a value or string.

Ø “Statement”

Statement of card definition.

l Example 1 for card definition:

:LS(9), transient stabilizer trigger.

.From, To, Form, IC, IW, Statement,

1 , 2 , A2 , = , LS, CARD TYPE,

3 , 3 , A1 , ><, , Must be empty,
