Stability Analysis Functions (RMS)
The RMS simulation tool in PowerFactory can be used to analyse mid-term and long-term transients under both balanced and unbalanced conditions, incorporating a simulation scan feature. DIgSILENT Simulation Language (DSL) is used for model definition, and a large library of IEEE standard models is available. Flexible co-simulation options are also available.
- Multi-phase AC networks, DC networks
- Support of balanced and unbalanced grid conditions
- Fast, fixed step size and adaptive step size algorithm
