The ability to simulate large scale power systems using PSCAD™ has created a demand to bring third party networks into PSCAD. PRSIM™ - Power System Importer - has been developed as a simple, easy-to-use tool for converting standard network data to PSCAD with minimal time and effort.
Relying heavily on PSCAD’s philosophy of open architecture, the PRSIM interface gives advanced users the flexibility to design their own custom libraries of models that fit their needs. A comprehensive library of scripting models is included with PSCAD’s master libraries for V4.6 and V5.
Step 1: Import power system data from standard network formats.
Provided it was in the original data, the PowerFactory XML format will contain corresponding sequence, dynamics and location data.
Step 2: Expand part or all of your network into one or more single-line diagrams (SLD).
Very large networks can be partially expanded and PRSIM will create an equivalent component for the unexpanded part of the network.
Step 3: Convert your PRSIM project to PSCAD (V5 or V4.6).
