Actions Command Summary
From SysCAD Documentation
|Command||Icon||Shortcut Key||Brief Description||Full Documentation / NOTES|
|Run||+R|| Starts the SysCAD simulation.
|Stop||+E||Stops the SysCAD simulation.|
|Idle||+I|| This will pause a dynamic or Steady State simulation once it has completed the current iteration.
|Step||+T||Runs the SysCAD simulation for one iteration or one timestep. This is very useful for debugging a project, as it allows the user to advance the project one step at a time.|
|Run to Steady State||This will run a Dynamic model to steady state. Steady state is defined as the point where the flows, levels and concentrations no longer change. The results from this will be the same as those obtained from a converged steady state model.|
|Group Operations||+G|| Implemented in Build137.21760.
This brings up the Graphics Flowsheet Group Operation Dialog box. A user can select multiple Graphics OR Areas to perform certain actions such as:
|See Group Operations for more information.|
|Reset||+Z||Reset calculated results and models states for the project.||See Reset for more information.|
|Process||Only valid for Dynamic projects, It will empty all pipes and flow values when the run begins|
|Control||Only valid for Dynamic projects, it will reset all controllers back to 'Base' state, i.e. the same state as when the controller is first inserted into the project. This is mainly relevant for PID controllers.|
|Statistics||Only valid for Dynamic projects, resets all Statistical blocks|
|Events/Profiles||Only valid for Dynamic projects, resets all Event and profile blocks back to start time|
|Empty||Only valid for Dynamic projects, It will empty all surge contents, tanks, conveyors, multistore, etc. regardless of presence of Preset image.|
|Preset||Only valid for Dynamic projects, It will apply all user defined Preset action for models. Currently this is only applicable for tanks with surge where a Preset image and options can be set.|
|Remove Qualities||The Remove Qualities command will clear the qualities information from all models and streams in a project. Used to clear unwanted qualities build up in recycle streams.||See Remove Qualities for more information.|
|Contents to Preset||Only valid for Dynamic projects. This command copies the current composition of the surge content to the Preset Image. This means that the next time a Preset action is performed, the composition will match the current contents of the surge. This can be performed on individual tanks using the CopyContentToPreset button on the Settings tab of the Tank access window.|
|Set Time to Zero||Sets time to Time zero. (Time zero in SysCAD is in seconds and corresponds to midnight January 1 1970.)|
