3.17 LoadData Section

The LoadData section is used to define load controllers. A load controller allows users to manipulate the value of most model parameters as an explicit or implicit function of time. Use the type attribute to define a particular controller. Currently the following load controllers are available:
  • loadcurve: the controller is a load curve, which is a tabulated list of time-value pairs. The user can set how the points are interpolated and how to extend the curve outside of its specified interval.
  • math: the math controller allows the user to specify a mathematical expression that defines a function of time. Other model parameters can be used in the mathematical expression.
  • PID: a PID controller.
