The run-impact-analysis command is used to run dynamic simulations on one or several networks, for all the configured contingencies and re-calculate all the predefined security-indexes.


$> itools run-impact-analysis --help
usage: itools [OPTIONS] run-impact-analysis --case-file <FILE> [--contingencies
       <LIST>] [--help] [--output-csv-file <FILE>]

Available options are:
    --config-name <CONFIG_NAME>   Override configuration file name
    --parallel                    Run command in parallel mode

Available arguments are:
    --case-file <FILE>         the case path
    --contingencies <LIST>     contingencies to test separated by , (all the db
                               in not set)
    --help                     display the help and quit
    --output-csv-file <FILE>   output CSV file path (pretty print on standard
                               output if not specified)

Required parameters


Use the --case-file to specify the path of the case file.

Optional parameters


Use the --contingencies parameter to filter the list of contingencies to simulate. If this parameter is not set, all the contingencies provided by the com.powsybl.contingency.ContingencyProvider are simulated.


Use the --output-csv-file parameter to export the output to the specified CSV file. If this parameter is not set, the outputs are printed to the console.


To run an impact analysis, one have to choose the implementation of the com.powsybl.contingency.ContingenciesProviderFactory to use, by setting the ContingenciesProviderFactory property to the componentDefaultConfig module. To learn more about contingencies or available ContingenciesProvider read this documentation page.

Read the simulation-parameters documentation to learn how to configure the impact analysis parameters.
