Can you work around PSSe crashing on some events?

Hi everyone,

Thank you in advance for your help. I am currently running contingency events from a python shell. My program works great with the exception of one thing, it crashes on certain events. Is there anyway of putting the files in a loop where if PSSe crashes, script will just restart PSSe and continue on to the next event without having to rerun in manually? These are dynamic simulations.

Use python error catching feature:

for i in events:
      psspy.comandxx()     #potentially could cause a crash
      print 'error message'
      continue             # next event something if no error occurred:

Question: Will this work if the crash occurs in the fortran code of PSSE?

I would say no, since error handling are intrinsic to the language, so it would have to be within the Fortran code to be effective. I tried the above code template on several psspy calls, and able to avoid PSSe crashes.
