Can somebody please let me know how to process an scfile from the ascc3 file. I am trying to obtain individual contribution from generators during a 3ph fault and used ascc3 for creating an scfile. However, I am not able to retrieve the information from it as it seems like a binary file. Is there a python script available to process this scfile or alternatively any APIs which can provide the individual generator contribution during a fault. I have checked ascc_currents but unfortunately it won't give information on other bus contribution.

Any help will be greatly appreciated

You can do the following to get the current contribution from any generator at a bus fault.

  1. Calculate three phase fault at bus ibus with SCMU

  2. Initialize the short-circuit data retrieval APIs with scinit()

  3. Get short circuit current at ibus with API scbus2()

  4. Get current contribution at generator gbus,id with API scmac2()

  5. Restore the working case with API scdone()
