7.4.2.10 IfcElectricFlowStorageDeviceTypeEnum

7.4.2.10.1 Semantic definition

The IfcElectricFlowStorageDeviceTypeEnum defines different types of electrical flow storage devices.

7.4.2.10.2 Type values

Type Description
BATTERY

A device for storing energy in chemical form so that it can be released as electrical energy.

CAPACITOR

A device that stores electric charge when an external power supply is present using the electrical property of capacitance. Two-terminal device characterized essentially by its capacitance. Note: definition from IEC 60050 151-13-28.

CAPACITORBANK

A device that stores electrical energy when an external power supply is present using the electrical property of capacitance.

COMPENSATOR

A device that is used to fix or adjust the parameter of electric energy, such as voltage loss, power factor and so on.

HARMONICFILTER

A device that constantly injects currents that precisely correspond to the harmonic components drawn by the load.

INDUCTOR

A device used in circuits or power systems due to their inductance, acting as a component of electric storage device.

INDUCTORBANK

A device that stores electrical energy in a magnetic field using electrical property of inductance.

RECHARGER

A recharger or battery charger is a device used to put energy into a secondary cell or rechargeable battery by forcing an electric current through it.

UPS

A device that provides a time limited alternative source of power supply in the event of failure of the main supply.

USERDEFINED

User-defined type.

NOTDEFINED

Undefined type.
