Yes, that volume conduction model is fine.

There should be EEG electrode locations for the 10-20, the 10-10 and
the 10-5 system with the EEGLAB-dipfit release as well. If not,
please use attached electrode file. It should match the BEM model.
You can check the match with HEADMODELPLOT.

you can do
   elec = read_fcdc_elec('standard_1005.elc');
and then
   cfg.elec = elec;
or alternatively
   cfg.elecfile = 'standard_1005.elc';
in sourceanalysis.
