Error and suspect during initialization

Anyone knows what does the following initialization error message means and how to fix it? And why sometimes after a few iterations or further down the dynamic simulation steps, the initialization would disappear?

*****ZPSS2A AT BUS:20691 MACH 1  :
 Machine in Synch Comp mode - KS1 set to zero 

*****ZPSS2A AT BUS:20692 MACH 2  :

*****WSTAB4 AT BUS:44281 MACH 1  :

Are the generators in synchronous generator mode, i.e. Pgen=0?

Yes, the generator output is very close to zero, but not the reactive power output (around 2MVAR from 42.5MVA base machine). What do you reckon the problem is?

Hi patrickrossiter, I do have initialization suspect. Here I only paste part of the message related to switched shunt. As you suggested, I looked up generator with terminal voltage being 0.9861pu and found two. But neither of their P/Q is beyond limits, however, one generator has Pgen=Pmax=Pmin=0.

I think that the error you are seeing is unrelated to the PSS messages you are getting. LUT generally stands for lookup table. I would suggest looking at UEL models and seeing whether any machines are outside their reactive limits, or active power greater than PMAX.

I would start looking at the swing bus, and then any machines you have added to the case (or other machines in the area) which have a terminal voltage of 0.9861 pu. Did you get any suspect initial conditions?

It may be an exciter model. Check machines with Efd=3.842 or 3.788.

Hi perolofl, I followed patrickrossiter and your thoughts, and found one generator with terminal voltage being 0.9861pu. After initialization, the one VARS of the generator exciter model is 3.788 exactly. Still do not understand why this is a problem. And why I found this value in VARs list?

And this generator has a Min exciter model 'DC2UEL', and there is no VARs value after initialization. Can you please explain a little bit about what does those numbers after 'STATEs = ' in the original script mean? where can i find those values in my initialized model?

Do you have any documentation of the stabiliser user written models?

It looks like the Pelec signal of the PSS is blocked at low electric active power (Pgen=0 in load flow).

Hi perolofl, what does LUT shorts for? How do you know it has something to do with PSS? I have absolutely no idea what should I look for?

TonyWong gravatar imageTonyWong ( 2019-06-30 01:44:35 -0500 )edit

LUT seems to be a power range where the PSS is active. The power is below the range. The models are PSS models!
