Hi there,
I am trying to get my system to converged however I keep getting the error over maximum tolerance.
In my sif file I changed both the below value to get greater convergence values.
Steady State Convergence Tolerance = 1.0e10
Nonlinear System Convergence Tolerance = 1.0e9
Linear System Convergence Tolerance = 1.0e12
Linear System ILUT Tolerance = 1.0e3
Does something else need to be done in order to get the system to keep doing the calculations.

Re: System Divergence over Maximum Tolerance
Convergence to a tolerance is more likely to happen with a larger number not a smaller number. However the smaller the number the more accurate the answer. So;
Steady State Convergence Tolerance = 1.0e10
Nonlinear System Convergence Tolerance = 1.0e9
Linear System Convergence Tolerance = 1.0e12
Linear System ILUT Tolerance = 1.0e3
Is a very accurate solution but more difficult to converge on than say;
Steady State Convergence Tolerance = 1.0e5
Nonlinear System Convergence Tolerance = 1.0e5
Linear System Convergence Tolerance = 1.0e7
Linear System ILUT Tolerance = 1.0e2
Which is much easier to converge on, but not as accurate as the first one, since the convergence tolerance is the second example is much larger than the first.
