Voltage Code Domains

This step is necessary only if you want Feeder Manager to recognize the Operating Voltages of your network features. However, if you have a multi-tiered network and are using the ArcFM FeederSubsource Level autoupdater, you must set up the voltage code domains.

  • The OPERATINGVOLTAGE field model name is required on the OperatingVoltage field and the field must be a Long Integer.        

  • The Operating Voltage field (designated by the OPERATINGVOLTAGE field model name) Requires two domains:

    • The first domain is created by the user, specific to the utility and the operating voltages that they work with. This domain is assigned to the operating voltage field. It can be named whatever you like. It must be a Long Integer coded value domain. For documentation purposes, we will call this domain Operating Voltage domain.                

    • The second domain is the FdrMgrVoltageCode domain. It must have the exact spelling and capitalization as shown. It must be set up with corresponding values to the Operating Voltage domain (see example below). It must also be a Long Integer coded value domain.

The following sections focus on setting up these two domains.

Operating Voltage Domain

You must first create an Operating Voltage domain. (This domain is called Electric Line Voltage in the Minerville sample data.) Below is an example of how you might set up this domain. The codes and values will be specific to your utility. The Description field holds the values that the user will see in the dropdown menu.

FdrMgrVoltageCode Domain

Feeder Manager tracing only takes FdrMgrVoltageCode values into account when found on conductors attached to a transformer.

It is vital that this domain be called FdrMgrVoltageCode EXACTLY. Use the same spelling and capitalization.

For any coded value that exists in your first domain (Operating Voltage domain in our example) you must have a corresponding value in the FdrMgrVoltageCode domain. The description field in this domain MUST contain an integer between 0 and 127. So we would have a FdrMgrVoltageCode domain that might look like this:

2.4 LG/4.6 LL kV Grounded Y

14.4 LG/24.9 LL kV Line-to-Neutral

NOTE: Schneider Electric recommends creating the descriptions in the FdrMgrVoltageCode domain so that increasing voltages map to increasing description values in the Operating Voltage domain. If Responder is implemented, this step is required.If Network Adapter is implemented, it requires that any equivalent voltages map to the same value in the Description field. For example, 160 means "7.2 kv grounded Y single phase" and 210 means "7.2 kv grounded Y two phase", making 160 and 210 physically the same. Therefore, they should both map to the same value (e.g., 160/32 and 210/32).
