Audit

From SysCAD Documentation
Jump to: navigation, search

Navigation: Main Page -> Models -> Common Sections

The details and values on the Audit tab page are only created after the SysCAD Solver has been started. It displays a summary of information required for mass and energy balance around the unit operation. This functionality can be enabled or disabled using the option "PlantModel.Audit.Action" on the Settings Tab Page of the Plant Model. If this is not required then this can be switched off which will provide a small improvement on solver speed.


Audit Summary

Next to each of the following fields there will be up to five columns. The columns are:

  1. Qm: The total mass flow in the current iteration.
  2. Mt: Total accumulated mass since the project was last restarted, only visible in a Dynamic project.
  3. Hf: The Total Enthalpy of all species in the current iteration.
  4. TotalHf: Total accumulated Enthalpy since the project was last restarted, only visible in a Dynamic project.
  5. AuditSp: This column is only visible if the Audit level chosen is Species (see "PlantModel.Audit.Level" on the Settings Tab Page of the Plant Model). If the tick box is selected, then that field will appear as an additional column in the Species Flows Table on the AuditSp page. The result will then be shown for each species.


Tag / Symbol Description
--In--
Sources (Sr) Material/energy which has been added via a reaction source, or if the unit is a Feeder then this is the amount of material delivered by the Feeder. (Note, a Feeder is a true source of material to the project, unlike a cross page connector which moves material from one flowsheet to another.)
Makeups (Mu) Material/energy which has been added via a Makeup Block.
Links.In (Li) Material/energy which has entered the unit via a link (pipe).
Leaks.In (Ki) This is only visible in a dynamic project.
Other.In (Oi) Energy added such as from an EHX block or Heat Exchange option in a Reaction Block.
--Out--
Sinks (Sn) Material/energy which has been removed via a reaction sink, or if the unit is a Sink then this is the amount of material removed via the Sink. (Note, a Sink is a true sink of material from the project, unlike a cross page connector which moves material from one flowsheet to another.)
Spills (Sp) Material/energy which has been spilt. This is only visible in a dynamic project.
Vents (Vn) Material/energy which has been vented. This is only visible in a dynamic project.
Links.Out (Lo) Material which has left the unit via a link (pipe).
Leaks.Out (Ko) This is only visible in a dynamic project.
Other.Out (Oo) Energy removed externally such as from an EHX block or Heat Exchange option in a Reaction Block.
--Audit--
Total.In (I=Sr+Mu+Li+Ki+Oi) The Total of all inputs = Sources (Sr) + Makeups (Mu) + Links In (Li) + Leaks In (Ki) + Other In (Oi)
Total.Out (O=Sn+Sp+Vn+Lo+Ko+Oo) The Total of all outputs = Sinks (Sn) + Spills (Sp) + Vents (Vn) + Links Out (Lo) + Leaks Out (Ko) + Other Out (Oo)
Total.Nett (O+Ad-I) Total.In - Total.Out
Accumulation (Ac) This is only visible in a dynamic project.
Depletion (Dp) This is only visible in a dynamic project.
Error ((O+Dp+Ad)-I-Ac) The absolute error. For a ProBal project, this will the same as Total.Nett. For a dynamic project this will be Total.In - Total.Out + Depletion - Accumulation
Error.Rel This is the relative error.

Copy to Clipboard Options: Note: Before pasting copied data onto MS Excel, please ensure 'R1C1 reference Style' is checked in Options -- General.
Note Also: This block copy includes a default SysCAD report, so once the tags are pasted (to set up the report in Excel), you can refresh the table by running a SysCAD value report in the normal manner.
CopySimple This button will copy onto the clipboard a simple version of the mass and energy balance around the unit operation where a single table will be presented regardless of the number of nodes present.
CopyFull This button will copy onto the clipboard a full version of the mass and energy balance around the unit operation.
Mass.In (M1) Mass flow in
Mass.Gain (M2) Mass added by the Model
Mass.Gain.RCT (M3) Mass added/removed by a Reaction Block using Sources or Sinks.
Mass.Out (M4) Mass flow out
FeedCp@T Heat Capacity at Feed (Entry) Conditions.
ProdCp@T Heat Capacity at Product (Exit) Conditions.
TotalHeat.In (H1) Total Heat flowing in (Sensible + Heat of formation)
TotalHeat.Gain Total Heat associated with MassGain
TotalHeat.Gain.RCT Total Heat associated with MassGain.RCT
TotalHeat.Out (H2) Total Heat flowing out
TotalHeat.Change (H3=H2-H1) Total Heat Change. This will normally be zero if:
1. There is no energy loss to the environment;
2. No reactions have Heat of Reaction (HoR) override; or
3. There are no Sources or Sinks in the Reaction Block.
If any of the above scenarios are true, then this value will not be zero.
PowerIn Heat flow from External Heat Source
PowerIn.RCT Heat flow from External Heat Source in Reaction Block
PowerIn.RCT.SrcCorr Heat flow from External Heat Source in Reaction Block due to Sources
PowerIn.RCT.SnkCorr Heat flow from External Heat Source in Reaction Block due to Sinks
PowerIn.EHX Heat flow from External Heat Source in Environmental Heat Exchange sub-model
SensibleHeat.In (S1) Sensible Heat flowing in
SensibleHeat.Gain Sensible Heat associated with MassGain
SensibleHeat.Gain.RCT Sensible Heat associated with MassGain.RCT
SensibleHeat.Out (S2) Sensible Heat flowing out
SensibleHeat.Change (S3=S1-S2) Sensible Heat Change
VLE.HfChange@0 Sensible Heat Change due to Phase changes in VLE block
HOR.Std@0 HOR @ 0°C calculated by the 'Standard' Species Model (relies on SDB). This includes the heat of dilution term.
HOR.Mdl@0 (R1) HOR @ 0°C and Reaction pressure, calculated by the 'Current Species Model' (may rely on SDB)
HOR.Used@0 (R2) HOR @ 0°C and Reaction pressure actually used. This will be different to the above terms if a HOR override has been used. This excludes the heat of dilution term.
HOR.HtDil@0 (R3) HOR @ 0°C for heat of dilution
HOR.Work@0 (R4) HOR @ 0°C for work done to compress/expand gases
HOR.Diff@0 (R5=(R2+R3+R4)-R1) HOR Difference @ 0°C. This will be non-zero if a HOR override has been used.
HOR.Used@Ref HOR @ 0°C and Reference pressure of 101.325kPa.
HOD.(Compound)@0.Nett Heat of Dilution due to compound @ 0°C and Reference pressure of 101.325kPa. This is for the change in concentration for the common flow between the input and output streams (ie minimum flowrate of inputs sum and outputs sum).
