I have two questions about Distribution factor data file. Do there's any python code can build ".mon", ".con", ".sub" files in PSS/E API? Second, if my power system have two situations (with different generator power output) to run the N-1 analysis with the same settings, could I use the same Distribution factor data file(.dfx)? Thanks in advance.

There are no API for building ".mon", ".con", ".sub", but this is text files so would be not big deal to write some python code for doing that. Or you can use excel, I for example have excel template that creates lists of branches in right format for .con and .mon. Regarding second question, I think you should check output results when using the same .dfx and not the same, and you will know is there any difference or not. I think if you are not changing grid topology (connecting/disconnecting branches and other equipment you have described in .con and .mon) there should not be any difference, because you should have correctly solved case before running contingency routines.
