CIM Issues #5882
Model fans, motors, battery systems and similar auxiliary equipment with terminals
IEC TS 62361-102 Recommendation R5
The business needs for modelling fans, motors and battery systems
and similar types of auxiliary equipment in control centre applications should be considered.
The IEC 61850 SCL allows fans, motors and battery systems to be defined either as types of
general equipment or as types of conducting equipment. When defined as conducting
equipment they will have terminals to allow modelling of their electrical supplies. There is no
corresponding CIM class for these types of equipment within the connectivity model except
the generic EnergyConsumer class.
Auxiliary equipment may be relevant for asset management purposes.
Possible use cases
- Switching auxiliary equipment in and out for maintenance.
- Derating the primary equipment as function of the state of the auxiliary equipment
