CIM-61850 Harmonization - Consider modelling fans, pump motors and battery systems as types of auxiliary equipment
IEC TS 62361-102 Recommendation R5:
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.
Equipment such as filters and pumps may be monitored by a central SCADA or asset management system.
Their status may be useful for assessing operational limits of power transformers or generation prime movers.
