When I use a call like WINDMIND, how could I get and use the output value?

In API.pdf, it shows the Fortran syntax:CALL WINDMIND(IBUS, ID, STRING1, STRING2, IVAL, IERR)

So, I write:


In order to get the output, IVAL, I write the below code in my understanding:


I put all these codes in a GUST model ,MODE 3, and in .dyr I write

2 'USRMDL' 1 'API' 106 0 0 0 0 4

All other models in .dyr are offical models like REECAU1...

However, when I start dynamic simulation, all the VARs are 0.

How to solve this problem?

Variable IVAL will contain the index of the first STATE for the wind generator model at bus 2, machine 1.

The third VAR should be VAR(L+2) = STATE(IVAL)

Variable IERR is zero when the call is succesful. It is wrong to assign VAR(L+3) = VAR(IERR), since VAR array doesn't have index 0. Remove the statement for VAR(L+3).

Thanks a lot! I will have a try on 'VAR(L+2)=STATE(IVAL)' I have another question about your comment: how can I know the value of IERR? Could it be VAR(L+1)=IERR?

Yes, you can use VAR(L+1) = IERR

I succeed in getting the index and value of the first STATE for the wind generator model. Besides, if I want to get the the second index and value, should I write another call or just use IVAL+1? Thanks again for your help!!

Yes, use VAR(L+3) = STATE(IVAL+1)
