    Hello. I need help on ETAP. I am able to carry out load flow without any error but when I try the transient stability study I am getting ‘TS calculation aborted due to max initial load flow iteration reached at t=0.000’. Please I need help. How do I proceed?

    it was very informative !
    as an engineer I think one interesting and useful option of power system softwares is their ability to import or export data from or to an other software such as digsilent or MATLAB !
    maybe it would be very useful to everyone!
    thank you for your best website!
