Area Tie Report
PSS®MUST is a tool for managing and utilizing system transmission. The tool supports engineers in determining transmission transfer capability by simulating network conditions with equipment outages during changing network conditions.
PSS®MUST complements PSS®E data handling and analysis functions with the most advanced linear power flow and user interface available. PSS®MUST speed, ease-of-use, and versatile EXCEL interface simplifies and reduces data setup time, and improves results display and understanding.

The tool efficiently calculates:
Transaction impacts on transmission areas, interfaces, monitored elements or flowgates
Generation redispatch factors for relieving overloads
Incremental transmission capability (FCITC)
FCITC variations with respect to network changes, transactions, and generation dispatch
The impact of transmission element outages on power flow by both DC and AC contingency analysis
Automated calculation of Available Transfer Capacity (ATC) and Available Flowgate Capacity (AFC) values
Users benefit from:
Users only need to set up the study once for various applications
Rapid assessments provide for fast response to constantly changing network conditions and consequential impacts
Network problems can be anticipated and alternatives can be analyzed with speed and ease
Specialized engine provides extremely fast transfer analysis, both linear and non-linear study methods
Calculates the area exchanges in the planning network model.
PSS®MUST includes a full Python™ Application Program Interface (API), allow fast and powerful integration of automated PSS®MUST workflow with PSS®E and other 3rd party tools, such as Microsoft Office.
PSS®MUST Version 12 includes a number of new features and enhancements. The most notable are:
PSS®E 34 Compatibility
PSS®MUST 12 is compatible with PSS®E 34 RAW and SAV files.
PSS®MUST 12 is not yet fully compatible with the PSS®E 34 Node-Breaker substation model. If there are substations contained within the RAW or SAV files that force the creation of bus sections (topological buses that don’t exist in the original Bus-Branch model), these bus sections are removed and only the base Bus-Branch model of the network is used. This limitation will be lifted in a future release of PSS®MUST.
PSS®MUST now supports a full Python API set for all activities and functions that can be invoked from the Excel GUI.
Recording in the Python format can be enabled from the PSS®MUST Excel GUI, and Python playback occurs in a Python enabled IDE or shell.
Full Python playback inside of PSS®MUST will be enabled in a future release.
