The A_DomainNetwork table is used to define the domain networks that participate in a utility network.


Target Domain Network

The domain network that will be added to a utility network.

Tier Definition

The tier definition for the domain network. The following are valid inputs:

  • HIERARCHICAL—A hierarchical tier definition. In hierarchical domain networks, tiers are nested within one another so features existing in subnetworks for a lower tier naturally participate in all higher tiers. For example, in a gas network, a valve Isolation zone is within a Pressure zone that in turn exists in a System zone. A feature in the Isolation zone also exists in the Pressure zone and the System zone.
  • PARTITIONED—A partitioned tier definition. Features in partitioned domain networks only exist in one tier. The relationship between tiers is ordered and linear. Features can exist in one or multiple subnetworks with one tier.

Subnetwork Controller Type

The subnetwork controller category for the new domain network. The following are valid inputs:

  • SUBNETWORK SOURCE—The subnetwork controller category is a set of sources. A source is an origin of the resource delivered. For example, in an electric system, sources of electricity are power generated stations and substations.
  • SUBNETWORK SINK—The subnetwork controller category is a set of sinks. A sink is the definition of the gathered resource.

Domain Network Alias Name

You can optionally choose to give your domain network an alias name. This name is used to give a more descriptive name to the domain network.
