Description

Handling unit multiplier
Need a policy for WG13 with respect to how unit multpliers are to be exchanged. For example CDPSM has need for Length to be in km for line length, but in meter for conductor spacing. 61970-552 does not provide for exchange of unit symbols or unit multpliers. Manual documentation is required in profiles. Possibly different model parts assembled together may have diffferent unit multipliers such as combining a distribution and transmission model together.


Proposed Solution

Simplistic solution is to align on one mutiplier (say 1) and only exchange meter, using the decimal in the actual exchange to express the value properly. This puts more stress on a user interface presenting the data differently than how it is exchanged.
