Hello Everyone,

This is my first post here so I will try to explain myself as good as possible. I need to apply different profiles of wind production and solar production in percentage per hour to elaborate a file with the 8760h of the year and study the system in each hour. I know that wind generation can be identified in the "Machine Control Mode" tab with the "Renewable: Standard QT, QB limits" but for a file of more than 1000 buses I don't know how to identify solar or gas or nuclear, so my question is if there is any way to identify and separate generation depending on the technology used. I am working with the raw files from ERCOT (Texas operator). I am starting to work with Python and PSSE too and I am really lost with everything.

Thank you very much in advance.

In PSSe, there is no specific variable to id machine by technology. At ERCOT, machine id is used for that purpose:
