Select the type of simulation under ATP|Settings/Simulation, as shown in Fig. 1. The user must specify the Power Frequency. All types of the new ATP output format is supported. Certain combinations of Outputs are not possible as required by ATP.
Fig. 1 Selecting Harmonic Frequency Scan. Note the base frequency of 60 Hz.
Selecting Harmonic HFS will run the ATP data case so many times as specified in the Harmonic source in Fig. 2. In this example, 5 harmonic components are specified and the ATP data case will run 5 times. The frequency of the harmonic source will for each ATP run be incremented. In the first run the source frequency will be 1x60 Hz, the second run 5x60 Hz etc. up to the fifth run f= 11x60 Hx = 660 Hz. The frequency basis is selected under Power Frequency in Fig. 1. The source frequency can also be specified directly in Hz and in such case the first F/n must be greater of equal to Power Frequency. Specifying the frequencies F/n like 60, 300, 420, 540, and 660 would be equivalent to what is shown in fig. 2.
The frequency of the harmonic source will for each ATP run be incremented.
