Option: Data Fitting
Controls whether the adaptive grid simulator or the (default) fixed grid simulator is used b y the fitting procedure.
➢Apply Current Normalization
Controls whether the standard deviation is computed directly from the current values or whether the current is normalized with respect to the maximum value of the absolute current before computing the standard deviation.
➢Max. Number of Iterations
Controls the maximal number of iterations (iterative parameter improvements) executed by the fitting procedure.
➢Exit if |dS|/S smaller than
Controls the relative change of the standard deviation, S, which is used as a criterion for breaking the data fitting process. The iterative parameter improvement is terminated if the relative change of the standard deviation in two successive iterations, |dS|, remains smaller than the value entered in the associated input field.
➢Save Optimized Parameters
Controls whether the results referring to the optimized parameter set are saved in a file named Optimal.ext where ext is the file extension of the simulation document (method):
Opens dialog box for specifying the path where the optimized parameter file is saved.
Info: Last Data File
The file name containing the last experimental current curve used by the fitting procedure.
The standard deviation, S, between simulated and experimental current curve referring to the last data file.
Info: All Data Files
The number of iterations executed so far by the fitting procedure.
➢S (Last Iteration)
The standard deviation between simulation and experiment referring to all current curves shown in the Tabbed Window: Experiments.
➢S (Minimum Value)
The minimum standard deviation obtained so far. Normally, the standard deviation should smoothly converge to the minimum value so that S (Minimum Value) equals S (Last Iteration) for each iteration. However, sometimes only a flat local minimum is found and the fitting procedure may even run away from such a minimum so that S (Last Iteration) becomes larger than S (Minimum Value) after a certain number of iterations.
➢Smin found in Iteration
The iteration number in which the minimum standard deviation, S (Minimum Value), was obtained so far.
Info: Optimized Parameters
A combo box that can be used for selecting a particular parameter from the list of parameters optimized by the fitting procedure.
The optimized value of the selected parameter.
The estimated upper limit for the selected parameter.
The estimated lower limit for the selected parameter.
The confidence level used for estimating the upper and lower limit.
Option: Current Display
Controls whether classical or IUPAC convention is used for drawing the current curves. (classical: cathodic current is positive, negative potential is drawn to the right; IUPAC: anodic current is positive, positive potential is drawn to the right).
Controls whether the total current or the current density is plotted.
Controls whether the current curves of all simulations or only that of the active simulation are shown.
➢Use Thick Pen
Controls whether a thick or the default pen is used for drawing the current curve(s).
Option for customizing the label on the x-axis.
Option for customizing the label on the y-axis.
Option for customizing the color of the background on which the current curve is plotted.
Option for customizing the color with which the current curve of the active simulation is plotted.
Option for customizing the color with which the current curves of the inactive simulations are plotted.
Option for customizing the color with which the inactive segments of the active current curve are plotted.
Option for customizing the color with which the min-max-info and some other text is plotted.
Option for customizing the color with which the axes are labeled.
Option for customizing the font used for plotting min/max-info and for labeling the axes on the screen display.
Option for customizing the font used for printing min/max-info and for labeling the axes.
Option: Export Data (*.txt)
Controls whether numbers are exported to txt-files in comma (1,234) or point (1.234) format.
Option for selecting the separator used when exporting data to txt-files.
Option: Export to RAM-Disk
The directory of the RAM-Disk to which the use-files are exported.
➢Save Black and White
Controls whether the image of the screen display is saved as Extended Meta File in the original screen colors or in "black on white".
Modified Options will be saved in the Windows Registry and restored when restarting the program.
