Proposed for review
engine link - GridLAB-D engine link target control file New in 3.1!
- GLM file
- Target control file
The engine link control file is used to establish a connection to an external application implemented using the glengine class library. It is always referenced by a link directive in a GLM file, i.e.,
The link control file may contain one or more of the following commands in addition to those supported by the link directive.
- Specified the maximum number of seconds to wait before a message send or recv times out. A negative value is treated as a very large number. The default is 10 seconds.
- Specifies the type of interface to used to transfer information between GridLAB-D and the application.
- Specifies the size of the memory cache used by the engine. Note that is specified on the GridLAB-D side of the connection even though the cache is actually implemented on the application side. This is because the amount of data being transferred is known to GridLAB-D and the default value is automatically calculated by GridLAB-D based on the size of the global, import, and export data.
