class Ifc4x2::IfcElectricFlowStorageDevice : public Ifc4x2::IfcFlowStorageDevice

An electric flow storage device is a device in which electrical energy is stored and from which energy may be progressively released.

HISTORY New entity in IFC2x4

Type Use Definition IfcElectricFlowStorageDevice defines the occurrence of any electric flow storage device; common information about electric flow storage device types is handled by IfcElectricFlowStorageDeviceType. The IfcElectricFlowStorageDeviceType (if present) may establish the common type name, usage (predefined type), properties, materials, ports, composition, assignments, and representations. The IfcElectricFlowStorageDeviceType is attached using the IfcRelDefinesByType objectified relationship and is accessible by the IsTypedBy inverse attribute. If the IfcElectricFlowStorageDeviceType has ports or aggregated elements, such objects are reflected at the IfcElectricFlowStorageDevice occurrence using the IfcRelDefinesByObject relationship.

Property Use Definition The property sets relating to this entity are defined by IfcPropertySet and attached by the IfcRelDefinesByProperties relationship. They are accessible by the IsDefinedBy inverse attribute. Property sets may also be specified at the IfcElectricFlowStorageDeviceType, defining the common property data for all occurrences of the same type. They are then accessible by the IsTypedBy inverse attribute pointing to IfcElectricFlowStorageDeviceType.HasPropertySets. If both are given, then the properties directly defined at IfcElectricFlowStorageDevice override the properties defined at IfcElectricFlowStorageDeviceType. Refer to the documentation at the supertype IfcFlowStorageDevice and ancestors for inherited property set definitions. The following property set definitions are applicable to this entity: Pset_ElectricFlowStorageDeviceTypeCommon (PSET_TYPEDRIVENOVERRIDE)

Quantity Use Definition The quantities relating to this entity are defined by IfcElementQuantity and attached by the IfcRelDefinesByProperties relationship. They are accessible by the IsDefinedBy inverse attribute. The following base quantities are defined and shall be exchanged with the IfcElementQuantity.Name = ‘BaseQuantities’. Other quantities, being subjected to local standard of measurement, may be defined with another string value assigned to Name. In this case a valid value for MethodOfMeasurement shall be provided.


Material Use Definition The material of the IfcElectricFlowStorageDevice is defined by IfcMaterialConstituentSet or as a fallback by IfcMaterial, and attached by the RelatingMaterial attribute on the IfcRelAssociatesMaterial relationship. It is accessible by the HasAssociations inverse attribute. Material information can also be given at the IfcElectricFlowStorageDeviceType, defining the common attribute data for all occurrences of the same type. The following keywords for IfcMaterialConstituentSet.MaterialConstituents[n].Name shall be used:

Casing: Material from which the casing is constructed.

Port Use Definition The distribution ports relating to the IfcElectricFlowStorageDevice are defined by IfcDistributionPort and attached by the IfcRelConnectsPortToElement relationship. If the electric flow storage device occurrence is defined by IfcElectricFlowStorageDeviceType, then the port occurrences must reflect those defined at the IfcElectricFlowStorageDeviceType using the IfcRelDefinesByObject relationship. Ports are specific to the IfcElectricFlowStorageDevice PredefinedType as follows indicated by the IfcDistributionPort Name, PredefinedType, and FlowDirection:

Line (ELECTRICAL, SINK): Incoming power used to charge the flow storage device. Load (ELECTRICAL, SOURCE): Outgoing power backed by the flow storage device.
