All outputs are given in physical particles, except when it is explicitly stated that it concerns macroparticles (i.e. only for the macroparticle number per cell).

Yes, now the simulation is running. Thanks a lot for this tip.

The erosion values can now derived by looking at the "flux of eroded source 1.1"? The dimension "#/m2/s" gives the number of particles eroded per second and square meter. Are these macroparticles or actual physical particles?

If you try to set it to 2, does the simulation work?

Hi Sebastien,

yes, it is currently set to 4.

do you have a global parameter called fluxChargeState and if so what is its value?

I try to model the erosion by a Hall thruster. The modelling of the thruster works fine. But as soon as switch on the erosion calculation the simulation stops always after the same time step giving following error message:

spis.Util.Exception.SpisRuntimeException: Units are not convertible: cannot scale from unit m-2.s-1 to m-2.A at spis.Util.Phys.Unit1.getDoubleScalingFactorTo( at spis.Util.Phys.Unit1.getScalingFactorTo( at spis.Util.Func.ConvertibleUnitScalFunctionOfScal.checkAndSetUnitIn(Co at spis.Util.Table.FloatScalTable.applyFunc( at spis.Surf.SurfField.ScalSurfField.applyFunc( at spis.Util.Monitor.FieldMonitor.generateLogData( ) at spis.Util.Monitor.FieldMonitor.generateSurfData( 7) at spis.Util.Monitor.FieldMonitor.monitorCurrent( at spis.Util.Monitor.FieldMonitor.monitorCurrent( at spis.Util.Monitor.FieldMonitor.monitor( at spis.Top.Simulation.SimulationFromUIParams.integrate(SimulationFromUI at spis.Top.Simulation.SimulationFromUIParams.integrate(SimulationFromUI at spis.Top.Top.Scenario.integrate( at spis.Top.Top.NumTopFromUI.integrate( at org.spis.ui.simulation.command.LaunchSimulationCommand$ at Source)

Did it anybody have a similar issue or can give me some insight what might be reason?
