(4) Select the Systems tab

Be sure to enter a life cycle value.

Click Add to define the project compressed air system

Populate with known system
requirements; define the sight
conditions and utility rate. Library
values are available. Make sure
all pink fields are populated. Click

Click Add to define the system compressor/s


Get from Library, Copy from Project, or
create from scratch. Load in annual
maintenance costs. Repeat as needed to
define the system. Click Save.

What to do with the information

Once the initial project system and related compressor/s are defined,
a report can be generated that shows the annual operational cost for
that system.

Making System Comparisons

1. Copy the Existing System within the same project and
rename it as desired.
2. Replace the project compressors with the desired
alternative in the new system. Add any
purchase/installation costs and annual maintenance
numbers. System parameters may be altered to reflect
demand or supply side energy efficiency measures.
3. Duplicate this process to include any competitve
4. The detailed report will now provide an imperical
comparison on a cost basis for each system and their
related cost savings/payback.

What to do with the information

By creating alternate systems, a comparison report can be
generated between systems to demonstrate cost savings to
be realized and the payback time for implementing the
alternate systems. Graphical representations of these
savings are also available.

Part 2 Training Manual How to use System Wizard 3

This program has 7 functions from which to choose.

Each function will have different pages for entering the
data that will be used to compare different systems; such
as compressors within each system, shift hours, energy
costs, etc.
Versions 3.50 and higher displays the number of days until the
current license expired. An updated license can be downloaded
from Sullinet.

The EXIT button will cause the program to shut down and will
exit the user from the program. This is done by clicking on the
EXIT button.

The CUSTOMER PROJECTS button is where all the data on the

systems being compared, compressors, shift hours, etc., is filled in.
To enter these pages, click on the button.

Clicking on the

in each section.

To add a customer,
click on the ADD

Doing so, will open a new

window called Add
Customer as shown.

Through out the new program, the user will

notice that some fields are high lighted in
RED with an asterisk. These fields must
contain data before the user can save the
information. The program will not allow
the user to proceed until that particular field
is filled in. Other fields may be left blank.

Once all important

information is filled in, the
user can click on the SAVE
button to save the
information and a window
for entering contact

Next click on the ADD

button under the contact

This will open a new pop up

window called ADD
CONTACT shown above.

To add a project under a

customer, click on the gray
button to choose a customer.
Then click ADD in the
Projects section.

When the Add button is used, the user is moved to this page
within the program. As can be seen, now we are entering the
data on the project. The only required field is the project name.

New Feature: If the project is at the same locations as the

customer, the user can use the GET CUSTOMER button to bring
in the address given to the customer.

When the GET CUSTOMER button is used, the program

will open this window. The user can select the proper
customer for this project and click SELECT.

It will cause the previous window to close and return the

user to this screen. As can be seen, the chosen customers
address information was brought into this page.

It also can allow the user to make changes to the units being
used by the program for report generation.

Click on the LIBRARIES tab to enter the three libraries contained

in the program; compressors, sites, and utilities.

Doing so will open up this new window. On this page there are
three tabs which contain pre-determined information for the three
libraries. The three libraries are, Compressors, Sites and Utilities.
These are the same libraries that were accessed when entering the
system data. Let us now look at the Compressor library.

As can be seen, the compressor library comes with pre-defined

compressors. This data can not be deleted or modified. The
library contains the current data for all Sullair compressors .


It also contains some generic compressors commonly found

out in the field.

The filters at the top of the page allow the user to narrow down
the choices for the type of compressor that will be used in the
The Favorites Checkbox at the top of the page allow the user
narrow the search to only models he/she has previously
marked as Favorites.

The user also has all of the common functions found in the
program to be able to copy, add view, clear filter and sorts as
shown previous in this presentation.

To view the data of a particular compressor, the user must

first click on the grey button in front of the row which
contains the compressor information. This will cause the entire
row of information to become highlighted.


Next click the View button and a new window will open up
that will display the compressor data as shown in the following


Here is the new window displaying the chosen compressors data.

This data can not be modified. To make changes, the user needs
to use the Copy button above. This will open up the following page.

Now the user can make changes to the data of this compressor.
The program will not allow the user to save the modified data
under the same name, therefore, the user must change the name
of this compressor in order to save the modified data.


This is the warning the user will obtain if trying to save the
modified data using the same model name for this compressor.


Once a new model name has been given to the compressor, the
user can than save the data by using the Save button above.
A new filtering function is also available that allows the user
to define his/her favorite models from the entire database.
Merely check mark the Favorites box on this screen to add it
to the Favorites list. This feature exists in all three libraries.

A new model can also be created by selecting Copy from the

main compressor library screen. The same method would apply
as previously stated.


As can be seen below, the modified compressor was saved to

the compressor library and can be used on future projects.
Note: Any compressor that was added by the user can be
modified or deleted from the library.


To ADD a compressor to the library, click on the ADD button

above. This will open a new window as follows.


When the ADD button is used, the user must fill in all of the
data fields manually. Once all fields are filled, the user can
use the save button to save the newly created compressor into the
library for future use. Or the user can exit and return to the previous
page by using the Cancel button.

Remember that only user-added information can be deleted from

the libraries.


To Delete a compressor from the library, select the compressor

to be deleted by clicking on the grey button in front of the row
that contains the information. This will cause the entire row to
become highlighted as shown below.


Click the Delete button above and the user will get this warning
message. Click on the YES to proceed, this will cause the row
containing the information to be removed from the library as
shown on the following page.

As shown, row 1182 was deleted from the library.


This page also contains the Clear filter and Clear Sort functions
as previously discussed in this presentation.


The Site tab of the library section contains all of the functions
found in the compressor tab and work exactly the same as
previously mentioned.

The Site library contains Pre-defined major cities within the

Unites States and a few international locations.
The Site library also contains the same filter functions as other
sections of the program to allow the user to narrow down the
choices to be used.


Editing, copying, deleting and saving data follow the same

process as outlined in the compressor tab of the libraries.


The Utilities Tab of the library section contains data on

common rates found within the United States.
This Tab contains the same functions as the two
previous tabs and function the same way. This is an
excellent place to use the Favorites selection.

All three tabs also contain a special function called Favorites.

For each library, the user can select the Favorites box when
selecting, modifying or up dating compressor, site and
utility data.
By doing so, the user can than check the Favorites box
displayed at the top of each tab for compressor, Site and
utilities and the program will only display the data for the
three libraries which have the favorites checked thus
narrowing the field of information being displayed in the
three tabs.

Clicking the CALCULATIONS button opens the

Calculations Window for adding project specific formulas.

Doing so will open this new window.

To begin using the Calculators, the user will click

on the Add button above.


Doing so will open this new window. Next

click on the drop down arrow of the Select
Calculation Type field.
A list will be displayed of all of the types of
calculations the program can complete . Use the
scroll bar on the right hand side to view all

Highlight the calculation you want the program

to complete as shown above and double click .


This will open a window that displays all of the inputs

required by the program to be able to complete the
chosen calculation.
Once again, only the highlighted boxes need to be filled.

Once these fields are completed, the user will click on the
Calculate button above and the program will complete the

The calculated parameters will appear in the area


If a calculation requires Ambient data, the user can click

on the Ambient button above to retrieve the required data .

Clicking the Ambient button, takes the user to the Site Library
where the ambient data of a particular location can be obtained.
The program will than use that data to complete the calculation.
The Site library is used in the same fashion as discussed previously
in this presentation. Once a location has been chosen, the program
will close this window and return the user to the previous page
that follows.

The user can continue with the calculation as previously discussed.

Once the calculation is complete, it can be saved by using the

Save button above.

Doing so will save the calculation in the program as

shown above. The description, category, name, input and
output of the calculation will be displayed.

If the user does not want to save the calculation, the cancel button
can be used to close this window and return to the opening page
of the calculations.

To Exit the calculations, click on the Exit button above and

the program will return the user to the following page.

As the name implies, the CONTROLS COMPARISON tab is

used to allow the user to demonstrate to a customer the
differences in using different Compressor control schemes to
help improve the compressor equipment efficiency based on
industry standard CAGI curves.

Clicking the button will open this window. The first steps is to
input data about the system and compressor.


System Capacity: This is the volume that the system holds in

piping and or receiver tanks.

To input data into these fields, click inside the field box and
type in the data. In this example, we are putting 500 as the
system capacity.

Nominal Power: This is the horse power of the compressor we

are using. For our example, it will be a 100 horse.


Rated Flow: This is the compressor full rated flow. For our
example we will make it be 460 ACFM


Rated Pressure: The compressors full load pressure rating. For

our example it will be 110 PSI.


We will leave the load delta at 10 PSI. The program defaults

the Unload power at 25% of the Nominal power entered on
this sheet, but it can be adjusted if need be by click inside the
fields and inputting the proper data.


We have now set the parameters for the compressor we want

to be using, next we can pick what types of controls we want
to use with this compressor. This can be done using the circled
fields above.


First we need to pick the compressor type we want to use.

This is done using the circled fields above. For our example,
lets use the following; lubricated recipe, single stage rotary
screw and two stage rotary screw.

To select the compressor type, click on the drop down arrow

to the right of the field. This will exapnd the field as shown

Move the cursor until the compressor type you want to choose
is highlighted and than just click on it to select.


That will collapse the expanded window and the selected

compressor will be displayed in the field.


As can be seen from above, all of the compressor types have

been selected for our example.


Now we need to select the control type for each of the

compressor types. This is done using the circled fields above.


Each compressor type has different control types that can be

chosen. Let us first work with the Lubricated recipe.

The user can click on the drop down arrow to the right of the
field they want to work with to expand the window as shown


As can be seen, the only control types being displayed for the
Lubricated recipe are; Five step, Load/Unload, and Three step.
For our example let us pick load/Unload. Move the cursor and
click on the choice.

Our selected control type will appear in the field. For the
single stage, expand the drop down menu to display the
control types for this type of compressor.


As can be seen, the user has six choices for the control type
for a single stage compressor as shown.


Move the cursor to the type we want to use. For our example,
let us use Inlet modulation with sump blowdown.

As can be seen, the selected control type now appears in the

field next to the single stage rotary screw. Now set the two
stage as a variable speed.

The screen above shows all of the chosen control types for
each compressor. Next click on the Chart button above.

This page contains a print function.


a refresh page function.


a zoom in and out function.


a search function.

and an export function which allows the user to save

the chart in different formats including PDF, Word,
Excel and other formats for easy use in the future.

When using the export function, this dialog box opens up

where the user can name, pick the format and location to save
the chart for future use.

The Chart displays

the power over

each compressor and
control types using
the parameters
inputted on the
compressor and
system capacity.


The lower the curve

is on the chart the
more efficient the
compressor with the

The reason being

that the lower the
curve on the chart,
the compressor is
using less power to

Therefore the user

can compare
different compressor
and control types
specific to a certain
system to determine
which will be the
most efficient.


From our example,

Closing this page will return the user back to

the following page.

To return to the previous page, click on the RED X at the top

of the right hand corner.

Or click on the black X shown above.


Now the user can run other compressor evaluations.


To close or exit out of the controls comparison,

click on the Exit button above.

The SETUP button window is used to pick the default units

that the program will use to generate a report. You can pick
English or Metric units depending on the user preference. It
also prefilters the databases for your particular preferences.

This will open a pop up window. Here the user

may alter the default units that the program will use to
generate a report. You can pick English or Metric
units depending on the user preference.

SystemWizard 3.6

The user can choose from the following units for each
parameter listed;


Distance: feet, meters

The user can also save chosen parameters as

regional setting by using the Save Regional Units
button shown above.

Clicking on the drop down arrow will expand the field

to expose all saved regions in the program.


This will allow the user to use the saved settings in the future
by selecting the region in the circled field.


Once the units have been selected and any regions,

defined and saved, click on the SAVE button to save
all new data settings as your default. Please note that the
selected region pre-filters the libraries to entries for that
region alone.

Currently the HELP tab does not function.

It will be implemented in the future.
