|Circuit de distribution|
|Verteiler / Schaltkreis|
A distribution circuit is a partition of a distribution system that is conditionally switched such as an electrical circuit.
HISTORY New entity in IFC4.
IFC4 CHANGE For electrical power systems, IfcElectricalCircuit has been used for low-voltage (12-1000 V) power circuits and has been replaced by IfcDistributionCircuit in IFC4; IfcDistributionSystem with PredefinedType 'ELECTRICAL' should be used for overall power systems, and IfcDistributionCircuit with PredefinedType 'ELECTRICAL' should be used for each switched circuit.
Composition Use Definition
An IfcDistributionCircuit may aggregate an IfcDistributionSystem using the IfcRelAggregates relationship where RelatingObject refers to the IfcDistributionSystem and RelatedObjects includes one or more IfcDistributionCircuit groups.
An IfcDistributionCircuit may be aggregated into sub-circuits using the IfcRelAggregates relationship where RelatingObject refers to the parent IfcDistributionCircuit and RelatedObjects refers to one or more IfcDistributionCircuit sub-circuits.
Assignment Use Definition
An IfcDistributionCircuit should be assigned to an IfcDistributionPort on an IfcFlowController element indicating the host or origination of the system using the IfcRelAssignsToProduct relationship.
Each device whose operation is conditional based upon the state of the circuit is assigned to the IfcDistributionCircuit via the IfcRelAssignsToGroup relationship. An IfcDistributionElement may belong to multiple systems or circuits, however only one IfcDistributionSystem or IfcDistributionCircuit of a particular PredefinedType.
