New ALFAsim Update 1.4 Offers Improved UI, More Equipment and Input Support
The latest version of ESSS ALFAsim, the Oil & Gas production and flow assurance simulation software, offers an improved user interface, GenKey import support, more equipment, a steady state module and many more improvements.
The major updates in ALFAsim 1.4 are:
Parametric Runs: Configuring multiple parametric variable runs has been greatly simplified using a new unified layout.
Separator node added to split phase flow to other nodes, including three types of separator: Horizontal cylinder, vertical cylinder and sphere and support for an arbitrary number of nozzles
Genkey import was improved and supports more devices and inputs (Mass sources, valves, reservoir inflow, and environment heat transfer properties)
Steady state mode to initialize boundary conditions is available as an experimental element
UI improvements – Status tab changes text and color to reflect the number of errors/warnings – Visualization mode (proportional or same size) in segments and wall editors and customized axis unit now remain between application executions – Simulation progress messages now display more intuitive times (“1h:30m”) – Time plotter refresh frequency has been increased, providing a more smooth plotting experience while the simulation is running.
Released in 2019, ALFAsim is a transient multiphase flow simulator for pipelines and wells. ALFAsim provides insight into pipeline design, O&G production and flow assurance.
ALFAsim is part of ESSS’s suite of custom products that supports the O&G industry: ALFAsim, Kraken, and SDVO software. ALFAsim was developed in partnership with GALP/Petrogal Brasil to address challenges involved with the Brazilian pre-salt oil region.
