When only calculating individual layers (e.g. flow and COD) convergence is OK.
If I turn on all 4 layers for calculation, it won't converge (exceeds 100 steps).
The Trace Output does not give me any clues on where it is struggling to converge. Only saying: "calculation canceled after 100 iterations". The more detailed text messages are very cryptic and I can't see any warning or error there.
If I change the convergence tolerance in Calculation dialog to a large value like 5, the model does converge, fairly rapidly so.
On first inspection, most of the reconciled values are pretty good.
The Trace output however, now throws a large number of gross errors. Looking at those, most don't look to be gross errors. They have k-factors well below one.
- how do the calculation settings influence convergence? (convergence tolerance, tolerance zero values and observable tolerance)
- is there extra info under the hood that can help in troubleshooting non convergence (pointing towards likely causes)?
- why are results with low k-factors flagged as gross errors?
