Hi everybody,

I am getting a strange error message, when I am calculating the impacts of my process:

An error has occurred. See error log for more details.
Illegal range: lower=NaN, upper=NaN

Furthermore, the graphs of all impacts look wrong (same heights, and no connection to any category). I have looked in the forum, but haven´t found an answer yet. None of my impacts streams are zero and I have closed and opended openLCA multiple times.

I would appreciate your help :)

Hi François,

this is what it looks like:

Processes, which I haven´t touched and which worked 2 days ago all get the same error message.

Hi amreibe,

This suggests that your technosphere matrix contains linearly dependent rows or columns (cf. post). This issue can arise if you use a parameter set to zero, resulting in a row or column composed entirely of zeros.

I recommend downloading the latest version of openLCA, which provides more comprehensive warnings about such issues.

Dear François,
thank so much. Installing the lastest version of openLCA helped without changing anything in the model (no values were zeros anyways).
Best, Amrei
