NEPLAN | Time Simulation

back to overview

The module Time Simulation (Load Flow) makes a single Load Flow calculation (forecast) or a sequence of Load Flow calculations (Time Simulation). The active and reactive power of consumers and generators with measurement data are determined before each Load Flow calculation.

Measured load data will be automatically applied. If measured data for a load at a certain date cannot be found in the database during a time simulation, the entered constant values for active and reactive power will be used. Missing measured values of a day profile will be linearly interpolated. This means that measured load values for a certain date (day) must be defined at least by one measured point. Otherwise the constant values of active and reactive power will be applied.

In case Scaling Types are used, the scaling of loads is done based on the load profiles defined in Day Characteristics and Long Term Characteristics, and the weakly/seasonal definition (see Scaling Types section)
