Edit Configuration Step 1 of 2

The first step is to select the SysCAD unit models to be used in the project. User may need to check the unit models from time to time due to:

  1. New Models may have been added through SysCAD version change, to use these new models, user must select them in this step of the Edit Configuration file.
  2. Some models are restricted by license agreement. If the project is to be shared with third parties, please ensure all parties involved have the correct license to access all unit models selected, otherwise user may need to de-select the "restricted" model and make modification to the project before sharing of the project with parties with less license options.

The image below shows 2 different views of the Model Selection access window:

  • Select Solve Mode
  • Model Library List - You may view the available models by:
  1. DLL (Dynamic Link Library), as shown on the left; or
  2. Group, as shown on the right.
NOTE: Not all models are available to all users. Please check your license agreement to see what models are available for use. Refer to Models for a list of the standard models available to users with standard licenses.
  • Select Unit Models
You may select (marked by the blue tick) or de-select models as required. Each dll (Dynamic Link Library) group shown in the above window contains a number of models, as indicated by the + box on the right hand side. By clicking on this + box, the user can expand the tree view and see the models available in each dll group. This is shown for the Separ1.dll group.
  1. To select ALL of the models in a group click on the group and a blue tick will appear.
  2. To de-select an entire group, click on it and the blue tick will disappear.
  3. To select (or de-select) only some models in a group, click on the + box so that the view is expanded and you can see all of the models in the group. You may then select individual models.
  4. When only some models in a group are selected, this is indicated by the blue tick having a grey background Button Small 1.png.
Edit Configuration - Units.png
  • Include All Unit Models
This is a new option in Build 138. When enabled, all unit models for dlls which have at least one unit model selected will be automatically included. This will also apply to future new unit models for a dll automatically being available.
The image below shows the same configuration, firstly without the Include All Unit Models option selected and then with the Include All Unit Models option selected. This shows that two unit models which belong to the HeatExchange dll and were not originally included, are included when the Include All Unit Models option is enabled.

  • Required species
Certain unit models require specific species to be present for the models to operate correctly. These include:
  • The Bayer species models;
  • The Potash models;
  • Certain alumina models, such as the Precipitator; and
  • Various client specific models.
Once you have selected the models for the project you may click on the Show Required Species button and you will see a list of all of the species that MUST be included in the project. If any of the listed species are NOT included in the project configuration, then SysCAD will give you a warning. After the Next>>> button is pressed, any required species which have not been included in the project configuration will have a red triangle next to them in the list of species on the left hand side of the Species tab page. Refer to Species Configuration.
Notes:
  1. If any of the listed species are NOT included in the project configuration, then the SysCAD will not allow you to open any projects using this configuration file.
  2. For most non-alumina and non-Potash projects the required species shown will be H2O(l) and H2O(g) only.

Edit Configuration Step 2 of 2

Based on the models selected, a second dialog box with varying number of tab pages will appear for further customisation when the Next>>> button is pressed. Refer to General Configuration.
