PSSE dynamic simulation: how do I remove the first 1 cycles?

I noticed that the simulation always started at t = -0.01667 second instead of t = 0, as a result of initialization. How do I make change using psspy in python to start the simulation at t = 0?

I tried to make change the settings in, but it did not seem to work that way.,tEnd,1,1,0)

Thank you,

PSSE is always initialising at minus two time steps. In your case at -0.01667 second. What is your reason to start at 0? You can plot the simulation starting at 0 and thereby hide the first two time steps.

Because I would like to simulate in a time step = 0.0333 sec, in a fashion of t =0, 0.0333, 0.0666, 0.1,... Thank you,

If your time step is 0.0333 sec PSSE will initialise at -0.0667. The simulation time will be: -0.0667, -0.0333, 0, 0.0333, 0.0667, 0.1...I.e. exactly as you want!

Is it possible to set time step as such using Or other function? Thanks.

Use psspy.dynamics_solution_param_2(realar3=0.00333333333) to change the time step to 3.33333333 ms.
