I'm finishing my PhD which was in developing a new method for modelling
controllable devices in LF studies. The method is based on constructing an
external (with respect to the LF problem) criterion function in such a way that
the root of this function corresponds to the correct solution. So, the LF
routine is unaltered and I use runpf() as a subroutine. I have completed the
derivations and have tested the codes using MatPower. Seeing as there are quite
a lot of questions about this functionality I have decide that I would like to
make the codes available to others.
?The modelling is developed for transformers (OLTC, PAR, QBT), 1st gen FACT
(Series and Shunt compensation) and for 2nd gen.FACTS (STATCOM, SSSC, UPFC,
So, does anybody think there is anything special to take into consideration
before I upload?
Also, a question for Ray, I previously made a pull req on GitHub with tap
changers and phase shifters and I was wondering if that was ok? Because maybe
I'd do it similarly this time.
