I have these converged Power Flow cases as .sav files. I want to extract the Bus Voltage Magnitude and Angle, Current Magnitude and Angle data. I am using the ABUSREAL function from the PSSE API to get the values of 'PU', 'KV', 'ANGLE', and 'ANGLED'. However, this is the error message from my script:

ierr, [PU, KV, ANGLE, ANGLED] = psspy.abusreal(sid = -1, flag = 2, string = ['PU', 'KV', 'ANGLE', 'ANGLED']) TypeError: cannot unpack non-iterable NoneType object

Also, for getting the current magnitude and angle data, I believe I may have to extract the admittance matrix data using output_y_matrix and I may be able to get the Current related data based on the obtained Voltage and Admittance data. Any suggestions for this would be helpful.

If anyone has encountered this or similar types of issues while extracting this data from PSSE to excel, I would appreciate feedback or suggestions to resolve this error and get the required output.

The error is caused by no data in memory. The saved case is not opened. Perform first.

Current magnitude and angle can be calculated from the power injection (P+jQ) for each connected object (branch, transformer, load, shunt, generator, etc).

Okay, this was helpful. I initially used the .raw case and hence I had ```,RAWFILE)```. Now, I am getting the required Voltage magnitude and Angle based on suggested change: ``` ```

Can you please share, how can I extract the Power Injection data? Thanks!

API brnflo returns the complex power for a branch.

I tried the python script on the savnw.sav and got no error.

On the error: "TypeError: cannot unpack non-iterable NoneType object", a NoneType object is related to non defined data, so it could be that the basecase is not being read.

Can you share why you need the bus current?

I want to get the Voltage and Current data to further perform state estimation
