desired_pf – Desired power-factor for the system to try and achieve.


module powerflow;
class volt_var_control {
     double desired_pf;
object volt_var_control {
     desired_pf value;


The value for desired_pf is used for setting threshold value for switching capacitors in and out of the system. It is determined at the substation_link object. If pf_signed is set to true, a negative value represents an inductive power factor (lagging) desired and a positive value represents a capacitive power factor (leading).


The default value for desired_pf is 0.98.
