We will show you a little function that you can use to selectively turn off this output (and other PSSE output) or redirect it to a log file.
This blog post is in response to a question by chip on the python for power systems engineers forum. Chip wanted to ignore some of the output that PSSE was printing without ignoring all of the program’s output.

set to ten thousand – based on our research of the optimal bus number).
What if you must redirect the PSSE output to a file? Got you covered. Use the silence function like this:

edit: You must also redirect PSSE output to Python using the
module included with every PSSE installation:
