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.
The new release introduces the ability to run Security Constrained Economic Dispatch (SCED) on contingency cases.
Utilizes a new algorithm called “Secondary Outage Distribution Factors” for contingency analysis – which replaced the traditionally slow and inaccurate AC or DC Loadflow with Outage Distribution Factors algorithm
Testing proved that the new algorithm showed enhanced performance characteristics and accurate results – it took less than two minutes to run calculations, identify overloads, and produce corrective / preventive solutions for over two thousand contingency cases within a major US ISOs system
Engine provides the ability to work on a single outage event – the ability to process multiple outage events will be introduced in the next PSS®MUST release
