Showing "MW" and "Mvar" in the SLD

Is it possible to somehow add the text "MW" and "Mvar" to the branch flow results shown in the SLD?

The numerical values are shown, but it would be convenient if the diagram showed e.g. "2.70 MW" instead of "2.70", and meaning that is is immediately obvious which result is the MW and which is the Mvar.

I'd like to show a screenshot to explain this but I don't have enough karma points.

I think I know what you mean, but I never had the need. The arrows are usually good enough for me. If you only want a handful of branches, you can look into how the "Summation" element is used in the "savnw.sld" from the examples.

Check out the image at this link. Note how the numerical values for MW and Mvar are shown, but not the "MW" and "Mvar" text to indicate which. Ideally, I would like the annotation to look like this. Is there any way to do this in PSS/E?

Ok, I had a quick chat with Siemens, and they have said that this cannot be done now, but they might offer this feature in future release.

Other than this, I think there may be something you can do using the "sliderPy" module. Bascially by adding labels next to the numbers to make the dummy appearances. A lot of work, not much gain. So, I say just put it on hold for now.

OK thanks for your help. I'll put it on hold, as you say.
