after converged how can I check mass and energy balance? to make sure I do not have any significant mass and energy imbalances?

Is there easy and convenience way to do that?

Results tab -> Review section -> Summary file.
or parse the .sum file directly, it is found in the solver directory of the applicable design scenario.

Thanks Tommy,

I also figured out that by myself and still thanks. In that summary file, I can easily check mass balance since they have mass flow rates for all the inlets and outlets.

How can I check energy balance? is this in that summary file too?
