I have added the model PLBVF1 and changed the value of 'Voltage playback flag' and 'Frequency playback flag' to '1'. I have also changed Playback file name (in single quotes, without ".plb") to 'myfile'.

I cannot locate 'myfile.plb' in my directory. Kindly Help

The PLB file shall be located in the same path as the DYR file. First, your DYR file must contain the following definition of the playback model:

BusNr 'USRMDL' machID 'PLBVFU1' 1 1 3 4 3 6 1 1 'PLBFNAME' Ubase Fbase 0.000 0.000 /

Note that at that bus no other dynamic model shall be attached.

The PLB file shall be in the working directory of PSSE!

The file "myfile.plb" is not created by PSSE. You have to create the file yourself.

Here is an example on how the file may look like with voltage in kV and frequency in Hz:

0 21.6 50
1 21.6 50 
11 21.6 47
21 21.6 50
25 21.6 50

Read the notes in the model data sheet!
