Case Studies

You can find case studies on how others have used EnFuzionPWR to speed-up and automate power systems simulations.

Speeding up PSS®E Transient Stability Studies

This case study demonstrates how to dramatically reduce the time required to perform a PSS®E transient stability analysis of power line faults by using multiple computers and EnFuzion. The use of EnFuzionPWR eases the task of defining large studies and switching between input data sets.  By distributing the computing load across many computers, EnFuzionPWR also helps to significantly reduces the simulation time.

 

Speeding up PSLF Simulations

This case study describes how to use EnFuzionPWR with PSLF, power systems analysis software from GE Power Systems.  By distributing execution over multiple computers, EnFuzionPWR helps users to get more results in less time.  Through its job management and fault tolerant resource management capabilities, EnFuzionPWR also delivers productivity gain to the user.

Where do I find more plug-ins for EnFuzionPWR to support my power systems simulation?

Axceleon is actively developing more plug-ins.  To get a roadmap of what’s coming, please contact sales@axcleon.com.  Other ways of getting plug-ins are:

  • We can modify or create a custom plug-in for you on contract.
  • We can show you how to create your own plug-in.

How is the EnFuzionPWR software licensed?

EnFuzionPWR software is licensed using license files called enflicense.txt. All software license files are version specific. If you have an active support contract with Axceleon, you can contact us at support@axceleon.com to get a new license file.

The EnFuzion Web page doesn’t start, what can I do?

When the EnFuzion Web page doesn’t start, the most likely reasons are:

– Missing or invalid license key

– The Root computer is running out of disk space

Follow these steps below to find the root cause of this problem:

– Try to start the EnFuzion Root process, i.e. enfdispatcher, manually.  The instructions for how to start the EnFuzion Root process can be found in the EnFuzionPWR Installation and Licensing Guide.

– Using the Task Manager on Windows or the ps ax command on macOS and Linux to see if the enfdispatcher process is running.

– If the enfdispatcher process is not running, check the EnFuzion dispatcher log file for error messages. The dispatcher log file is on kept on the Root computer, called enfuzion.log, and located in the /work subdirectory under where EnFuzion is installed.

– If your EnFuzion license key is missing or invalid, install a valid license key.

– If your Root computer is running out of disk space, with less than a few MB available, the EnFuzion Root software records this in the enfuzion.log file and terminates. If this is the case, make more disk space available on the Root computer and reboot the machine or restart EnFuzion.

– If the log file enfuzion.log does not exist, delete all the files in the /work directory on the Root computer, and verify the user account that EnFuzion is running under, on the Root machine, has permission to write to the /work directory.

– If after you have installed a valid license and made sure that the Root computer has sufficient disk space, there is still no enfdispatcher process and no EnFuzion.log file after the machine is rebooted, verify that EnFuzion is configured to automatically start at the boot time.  The instructions for how to do this can be found in the EnFuzionPWR Installation and Licensing Guide.

How do I send my diagnostic files to Axceleon?

We often ask you to send your diagnostic files in the course of technical support.  These diagnostic files may be very big, so we suggest you use ftp to send these files.

 

Login Information

  •              Site:  ftp.axceleon.com
  • User name:  ftpax
  •   Password:  ftpax

Site Restrictions

Our FTP site is configured to act as a one-way mailbox.  You can only upload files, but you cannot browse the directories or read from it.

 

FTP Clients
The standard Windows FTP client has very limited features, and it does not work reliably. We recommend that you use a third-party FTP client such as FileZilla or WinSCP.
