Many systems are required to monitor fuel sample information per Part 75. StackVision can help you keep your fuel information organized through the use of Fuel Samples within the Fuel Systems tool.
Fuel Systems can be accessed through StackVision by selecting Tools > QA and Certification > Fuel Systems, and new fuel sample entries can be added by clicking the green plus button at the top of the screen.
The Fuel Sample Wizard will walk you through each necessary field, including the fuel class, fuel type, starting date of the sample, GCV value, and the sampling method. At this point the fuel sample record has been created, but will not be saved until the save button is clicked in the top left. If “save with ProcessNow” is chosen, it will save the entry and run the daily ProcessNow afterwards (this may require extra configuration).
If this is the first time adding a fuel sample for a unit, Fuel Systems will create a file in the StackVision folder called .GAS or .OIL. These files contain all of the same information that you just entered into Fuel Samples, but in a format that is readable by StackVision. Every time a new fuel sample is saved for a unit, this file is edited with the new information. All of this is done behind the scenes by the Fuel Systems tool.
Now that you have your fuel sample added, you will need to run a ProcessNow task called APPLYFS to apply the GCV data into the database. This task is generally run directly after the first ACCEPT task within the daily ProcessNow, and specifies the .GAS or .OIL within the “other arguments” section. If it is configured correctly, the GCV data entered in Fuel Systems will be applied to the correct GCV parameter and all of the constituents of that GCV parameter will be calculated.
