From some of my early experiments I think that putting a BPC with a too low number of runs reduce your chances of success.
Most max run BPC have 300 runs, and after a successfull invention they always produce 10 runs BPC, so if you put on invention a BPC with 30 run you get a 1 run BPC, if it is a 40 run you have a 66,6% chance of a 1 run BPC and 33,3% of a 2 run BPC if invention is succesful.
But if you use a 10 run BPC, if invention is successful you have a 66,6% chance of a 0 run BPC and 33,3% of a 1 run BPC. In the event of the 0 run BPC the message is the same you get for a failure.
This is only an opinion, but I formed that opinion after seeing the results of a decent number of attempted inventions with less than max run.
