IEnergyGenerator

module interface

The energy generator models describe the energy generation process of devices over time. A solar panel, for example, produces energy based on time, the panel's position on the globe, its orientation towards the sun and the actual weather conditions.

IEnergyGenerator

Known subclasses

Name Type Description
ICcEnergyGenerator module interface

This interface extends the corresponding energy model interface. It requires implementations to describe energy consumption and energy generation with current [A], and storage capacity with charge [C] and output voltage [V]. The Cc is an abbreviation that is used for charge and current based interfaces.

IEpEnergyGenerator module interface

This interface extends the corresponding energy model interface. It requires implementations to describe energy consumption and energy generation with power [W] and storage capacity with energy [J]. The Ep is an abbreviation that is used for energy and power based interfaces.

Used in compound modules

Name Type Description
NodeBase compound module

This module contains the most basic infrastructure for network nodes that is not strictly communication protocol related.
