I am a beginner in CIM.  

In our company we use a classification called Asset class for asset maintenance, e.g. Power Transformer, current transformer, oil filled breaker, air breaker, potential transformer etc. It is the highest classification of electrical assets in our company (real assets not PSR). Then we have three levels for the assets hierarchy:

    Asset Class (Power Transformer, 5 types of breakers, current transformer, etc.) 

    Asset Type (asset with same manufacturer same model)

    Individual assets (linked to Asset type).


I don't see direct classification in CIM like this. However, we do have a class "Asset" which is same as our Assets. There is ProductAssetModel which is equivalent to our asset type. There is no higher classification I can see. But there is a kind attribute in Asset which is based on enumeration AssetKind. This enumeration contains proper asset class level values.


Can we use this attribute to distinguish the asset class. Is this proper usage of the model?

​Is there a way to include the real and imaginary part of a complex value in the AnalogValue class?

The use-case is I have power measurements with active and reactive components to be attached to an EnergyConsumer or PowerTransformer say.

Should I use two AnalogValue elements, one refering to an Analog with measurementType: "active power" and the other referring to an Analog with measurementType: "reactive power"?

​Anyione who is using the CIM or who provides CIM-based products and/or services is welcome to submit an entry. Currently there are two entries. It would be nice to have more. Are there issues that we need to address to make this happen?
