PLUS42 - Usage of UNITS functions in solver
I am using Plus42 v.1.0.10 Decimal under Windows 10.

I am trying to use the Equation Solver to implement the following equation:

Code:
TEST:TimeH=L(K1:EXP(UBASE(U*A*(INV(W*C)-INV(w*c)))))*0+L(K2:(M*(G(K1)*w*c-W*C)/(W*w*c*(G(K1)-1))))*0+G(K2)*LN((UBASE(t1)-UBASE(T1))/(UBASE(t1)-UBASE(T2)))

All variables shall be with units.
The use of UBASE in K1 definition is necessary to reduce all UOM to their base definition, and the semplification of UOMs will reduce to a pure number.
The use of UBASE in LN argument has the same purpose of the above, plus the purpose of converting the temperatures to Kelvin degrees.
When solving, i get a "NONEXISTENT" error, just like UBASE is interpreted as a variable (see attached screenshot)

Such arrangement works properly on 48g/50g (of course keeping K1 and K2 definition outside the main equation and using MES)
Code:
{ 'K2=M*((K1*w*c-W*C)/(W*w*c*(K1-1.)))' 'K1=EXP(UBASE(U*A*(1./(W*C)-1./(w*c))))' 'Theat=K2*LN((UBASE(t1)-UBASE(T1))/(UBASE(t1)-UBASE(T2)))' }

What am i doing wrong?

UBASE isn't defined as a built-in function in the equation language. (There is a complete list of built-in functions here, under the sub-heading Functions.)

I guess I should add it, but in the meantime, you can work around this problem by creating a function UBASE yourself, and implementing it using a program:

UBASE(X):XEQ(UB:X)

00 { 8-Byte Prgm }
01▸LBL "UB"
02 UBASE
03 END

Should any other unit-related functions, apart from UBASE, be made available in the equation language as well?

Yes, UVAL will be useful too.

By the way, any new about a multiple equation solver like MES?

I haven't really thought about it... it's not high on the list.
I would like to do it eventually, but for now, I don't even have an algorithm.

UBASE and UVAL in EQN Solver works as expected.

Thank you!
