linux default iconPyCIM Publisher's description

PyCIM is a Python implementation of the IEC Common Information Model.

PyCIM is a Python implementation of the IEC Common Information Model. Current features include:

- Support for IEC 61970 14v15 and IEC 61968 10v31.
- Class and attribute documentation integrated as Python docstrings.
- Transparent bi-directional reference handling using Python properties.
- CIM RDF/XML parsing and serialisation according to IEC 61970-552.


PyCIM has no dependencies beyond Python_ 2.5 or later. It can be easy_installed
using setuptools_::

$ easy_install PyCIM

Alternatively, download and unpack the tarball and install::

$ tar zxf PyCIM-14.15.tar.gz
$ python setup.py install

On UNIX systems, use sudo for the latter command if you need to install the scripts to a directory that requires root privileges::

$ sudo python setup.py install

The development Git_ repository can be cloned from GitHub_::

$ git clone https://github.com/rwl/PyCIM.git

Using PyCIM

To use PyCIM with the Python interpreter, iPython_ is recommended. For example,to instantiate a ``ConnecticityNode``:

.. sourcecode:: ipython

In [1]: from CIM14.IEC61970.Core import ConnectivityNode

In [2]: node = ConnectivityNode(name='Node 1')

To associate the node with a ``Terminal``:

.. sourcecode:: ipython

In [3]: from CIM14.IEC61970.Core import Terminal

In [4]: t = Terminal(name='T1', ConnectivityNode=node)

In [5]: node.Terminals[0].name
Out[5]: 'T1'

To add a ``Terminal`` to a ``ConnectivityNode``:

.. sourcecode:: ipython

In [6]: t2 = Terminal()

In [7]: node.addTerminals(t2)

In [8]: t2.ConnectivityNode.name
Out[8]: 'Node 1'

To view the docstring for an attribute:

.. sourcecode:: ipython

In [9]: t.connected?
Type: bool
Base Class: <type 'bool'>
String Form: False
Namespace: Interactive
bool(x) -> bool

Returns True when the argument x is true, False otherwise.
The builtins True and False are the only two instances of the class bool.
The class bool is a subclass of the class int, and cannot be subclassed.

To parse a CIM RDF/XML file:

.. sourcecode:: ipython

In[1]: import logging

In[2]: logging.basicConfig(level=logging.INFO)

In[3]: from PyCIM import cimread

In[4]: d = cimread('path/to/input_file.xml')
INFO:PyCIM.RDFXMLReader:Created 5660 CIM objects in 1.04s.

The ``cimread`` function returns a Python dictionary that maps UUIDs to CIM
objects. To serialise the dictionary of objects:

.. sourcecode:: ipython

In[5]: from PyCIM import cimwrite

In[6]: cimwrite(d, 'path/to/output_file.xml')
INFO:PyCIM.RDFXMLWriter:5660 CIM objects serialised in 1.14s.

System Requirements:

No special requirements.
Program Release Status:
Program Install Support: Install and Uninstall
