Gen Outage Tool

Neil Copeland
When using the Gen Outage Tool in PAT the program is looking for a single file (.LIB) and dislikes seeing more than one.  In a segmented run they are all identical if you let PMIV develop them.  Can you have the program work through this warning, or just choose to read the first one?

Neil,
  Problem is, when the user creates a new LIB file and leaves the old one in the same folder, the PAT could possibly read the wrong one.  If multiple LIB files (or no lib file, for that matter) exist in the folder, then the button labeled "Read LIB" should appear on the form, allowing you to read the file you point to.
  Please let us know if this fails to work for you.

That should work, and I understand.  Can you check one other thing; in some instances it is not picking up the last day of the month for the load values.  Can you check that?

 

Also, does the tool read the .OUT file for the planned outages?

We would have to see an example PFF & DAT file to look into the "last day of the month" problem you're having.  Please provide some detail in your response.
  On the "Planned" tab, you can press "Read AM" (automatic maintenance) to process an OUT file.  All other maintenance items will be locked, unless they appear in the OUT file.

Very good.  Data is on the server; may be easier to walk through over the phone, but in the Gen Outage Tool, check July 31, 2023 after importing the data and see if the load shows up.

Neil - we found the problem.  The hourly view on the load model tool now shows HE 24 on the year's final day.  Thanks for find this micro-bug.

Just to make sure, does this fix allow the “end of month” loads to show up in the Gen Outage Tool?
