Adding Oil compound to DWSIM

I'm using DWSIM to simulate a biodiesel process and for that I need to add components included in soybean oil. how do I go about doing that? Soybean oil mainly contains triglycerides and free fatty acids but you cannot add general compounds into the simulator, would I have to add each specific compound in those groups into DWSIM or is there a simpler way of doing it

You might add such compounds using the compound creator tool available in DWSIM. You can define the number of groups/sub-groups of aldehydes, acids, etc while adding the compounds and then the thermo-physical properties of the compounds are auto-generated. More details about using the compound creator utility can be found here: https://dwsim.inforside.com.br/wiki/index.php?title=Using_the_Compound_Creator_Utility
