PSS/E Fortran Code to PSCAD

Hi everybody,

I had created an user defined model code in Fortran for PSS/E and then compiled into a .dll for develop dynamic simulations. I am going to start to use PSCAD so I would like to know if is possible to use the Fortran developed for PSS/E in PSCAD because I need to build the same user defined model. Have somebody done something similar? Does PSCAD have some API document as PSSE for build its own user defined models using Fortran?

Thanks in advance.

PSSe Fortran code cannot be used directly into PSCAD.

PSCAD is a 3-phase modeling tool with integration times in the microsecond range while PSSe is a positive-sequence, RMS-based modeling tool with integration step in the millisecond range. PSCAD uses mainly a GUI-based modeling approach similar to simulink (matlab) and Fortran code for those models not in their library while PSSE UDM development is mainly Fortran code based, unless the NEVA tool (GUI-based...) is used. The modeling assumptions would not be the same or compatible between these platforms.

Dear @jconto thank you very much for your answer. For a moment I thought I will be able to translate the PSS/E fortran code into PSCAD but as it is not possible I will model the UDM from scratch in PSCAD
