Classification of Emitter in EnergySystem module
Created by: gioagu
In a first attempt to reorganise hierarchically most of the entities in the Energy System module, the classification of Emitter is somehow unclear. We have so far three "big families" of classes: Conversion, Storage and Distribution. The emitter is however alone and only connected to a Distribution class.
I was wondering, together with Joachim and Romain, whether there could be a way to characterise it a bit better. On one side, it is delivering energy to satisfy an energy demand, but it is not connected to it. On the other side, is it really a device which distributes energy (e.g. heat?), or just the end node of a distribution system?
The general idea is to define a general abstract class _EnergySystem which generalises all Conversion, Distribution and Storage Systems. An UML diagramme, and a new ticket, will be ready issued soon (thx Joachim!).
Dear members of the Energy System team, could you please help? Thank you for your help!
