Jump to navigation Jump to search


A Powerflow Case Component is all or part of a Powerflow Case Definition stored separately as an .xml file. Components are created by exporting all or selected parts of a Powerflow Case Definition to the Component Library.


Components can be directly imported into new Case Definitions at any time. Components can also be made available to other users of EMarketOffer and incorporated into their Case Definitions.

  3. Individual items within a class (e.g. selected Circuits within the circuit class)
