I am running some transient simulations and rather than running for the specified number of time steps, I would like them to run until they have converged, and then automatically stop and save the data once convergence has been reached. Is this possible?

Check for convergence over time during a transient simulation does not make sense.
The convergence has to occur for each time step which will imply that the transient run is converged. The transient run needs a hard stop defined such as time or no of TS.
