    Restarting a long simulation from where it is stopped due to POWER FAILURE Reply

     Dear All,

     I have been running a simulation since past two days. It is based on both transients & PSS.

    Unfortunately, due to power failure, the simulation was stopped. Now again I have to rerun it from the scratch.

    In other words two days is a WASTE.

    Is there a way, to start the  simualtion where it is stopped.

    Could anybody please reply to it.

    Kind Regards,

    Probably not unless you used the savefile option on Transient. 

     Then you could use the Recover option to restart. 

     If not, sorry!

    Regards,

    Andrew

     Whether PSS/Pnoise can be recovered in the same way ?

    savefile and recover can be used as options on the pas analysis, but they will only help recover the tstab (initial transient) phase of the pss. They will not help if it is already in the shooting or HB phase. If the pss had finished and you'd used writepss then you could have possibly used readpss to recover it and restart more quickly.

    There's nothing to resume a pnoise though if it aborted part way through that (you could rerun the pss with readpss, but the pnoise would have to start from scratch.

    Regards,

    Andrew
