7.4.3.43 IfcTransformer

Transformateur
Transformator

A transformer is an inductive stationary device that transfers electrical energy from one circuit to another.

IfcTransformer is used to transform electric power; conversion of electric signals for other purposes is handled at other entities: IfcController converts arbitrary signals, IfcAudioVisualAppliance converts signals for audio or video streams, and IfcCommunicationsAppliance converts signals for data or other communications usage.

Formal Propositions:

CorrectPredefinedType : Either the PredefinedType attribute is unset (e.g. because an IfcTransformerType is associated), or the inherited attribute ObjectType shall be provided, if the PredefinedType is set to USERDEFINED.
CorrectTypeAssigned : Either there is no transformer type object associated, i.e. the IsTypedBy inverse relationship is not provided, or the associated type object has to be of type IfcTransformerType.
