IEnergyStorage

module interface

The energy storage models describe devices that absorb energy produced by generators, and provide energy for consumers. For example, an electrochemical battery in a mobile phone provides energy for its display, its CPU, and its wireless communication device. It can also absorb energy produced by a solar panel installed on its display, or by a portable charger plugged into a wall socket.

Inheritance diagram

The following diagram shows inheritance relationships for this type. Unresolved types are missing from the diagram.

Extends

Name Type Description
IEnergySink module interface

The energy sink models absorb energy from multiple energy generators.

IEnergySource module interface

The energy source models provide energy for multiple energy consumers.

Known subclasses

Name Type Description
ICcEnergyStorage 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.

IEpEnergyStorage 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.
