This property sets/gets the relative weighting factor for reliability calculations. Default = 1. Used to designate high priority loads such as hospitals, etc. Is multiplied by number of customers and load kW during reliability calculations.


% Create DSS object

DSSObject = actxserver('OpenDSSEngine.DSS')

if ~DSSObject.Start(0),

                    disp('Unable to start openDSS');



DSSText = DSSObject.Text;

DSSCircuit = DSSObject.ActiveCircuit;

% Compile a model        

DSSText.Command = 'Compile C:\myPath\myModel.dss';

DSSLoads = DSSCircuit.Loads;

% activates the first load on the list

i = DSSLoads.First;

% gets the relative weight for the active load

myRelW = DSSLoads.RelWeight;
