Electric Network Interface (ENI)

A new interface has been developed, which enables subnetworks in individual projects to be electrically connected to each other and simulated as one complete network. In essence, this provides a way to break large electric networks into subnetworks, interconnect them, and run each as a separate process, on an individual processor core. Communication is accomplished through TCP/IP sockets. Alterations have been made to the transmission segment components to facilitate the interface, along with changes to the EMTDC communication interface with PSCAD:
