Hi Subesh and Buvana,
Thanks for your contribution.
The diode characteristic inside the PV Array blocks is now correctly implemented as Id=Isat*[exp(Vd/Vt)-1]. See latest update (oct. 9).

Hi
My problems are similar
I am getting errors saying
1)Initialization commands cannot be evaluated
2)error in evaluating system parameters
How can I overcome this problem...

@yuvaraj Kondaswamy depending on your OS, you can download the SDK from the windows website. Afterwhich you can follow this link http://qt-project.org/wiki/Cannot_Install_Windows_SDK Thereafter execute the SDK. I hope this helps everyone else with the query.

Awesome model. Thank you so much!

I am trying to run 'PVarray_Grid_PandO_avg.mdl' as a referenced model from the Kundur two area system average model 'power_pss'. I keep getting an algebraic loop error emanating from the PV array which I have unsuccessfully tried to break using rate transitions and other means...kindly provide any pointers.

A bit more detail to my immediate prior post is that the model I am trying to run as a referenced model is the 'average model'.
