Aveva's SimCentral is a process simulator widely used in the oil and gas industries. Cranium and Synapse can generate SimCentral input files. These input files can contain both physical property data and parameters for physical property models. Once a file is generated, commands within SimCentral can be used to load the contained physical property values into a process simulation.
The following window displays an example SimCentral input file. Cranium and Synapse will also generate a ".xlog" log file that details the sources and procedures used to generate the exported physical property values.

The following input files were generated by exporting physical property values for cyclohexanol, ethyl acetate and ethanol.
|Cyclohexanol.xml||A SimCentral XML input file containing physical property values and technique parameters for cyclohexanol.|
|EthylAcetate.xml||A SimCentral XML input file containing physical property values and technique parameters for ethyl acetate.|
|Ethanol.xml||A SimCentral XML input file containing physical property values and technique parameters for ethanol.|
|Ethanol.xlog||The log file created by the application documenting the data sources and estimation techniques used to generate the exported values for ethanol.|
The following presentation was given at the 2018 AVEVA World Conference in Houston, Texas, USA. It describes the use of Cranium to generate input files for the SimCentral process simulator.
