The storage battery data model is intended to describe the technical characteristics of the battery and the charging and discharging conditions of the energy. The charging functionalities apply from a power source which can be an ‘on-board system, solar panel, wind turbine, generator, power supply’. Hydraulic sources are not included in this version. The discharge functions apply to all types of the system requiring energy consumption from a storage battery. *Remark* This Data Model can be used directly as the main entity to describe the device *Battery Storage* or as a sub-entity of the Data Model *DEVICE* using a reference by the *refDevice* attribute.
All the specifications (the text descriptions of the data model located in the /doc directory of each daat model) for the different domains and languages (currently French and Spanish besides English) have been updated to the new format. See an example in Spanish and French.
All of them are generated automatically from the json schema (which is the unique source of truth for the data model)
The new version of the smart data models specification is on progress (most of the /doc directories of the data models have a version). If you want to check how this would look like you can have through this API call
Output: A markdown text that although the HTML visualization is faulty, the source code of the page can be pasted in any markdown viewer (optimized for github) and you see will see something like this.
We are on the transition to having all the data models compliant.
Most of the data models have a new file into its /doc directory name spec_FR.md. It contains a specification generated automatically based on the schema.json with all its texts translated into French. (With the deepL tool, so you can expect some ‘incorrect’ translated elements).
The official spec remains to be the spec.md file. However in coming days, the format, but not the name of this spec will change when the version named spec_EN-US.md will become official and it will replace the contents of spec.md.
Independently of what is happening the official version will always be spec.md.
Other languages, possibly German, Japanese and eventually Chinese are on the queue.
