A subnetwork represents a topological subpart within a tier where all the connected features are defined by the same subnetwork controller or controllers. The maintenance of subnetwork information is optimized by having the ability to export subnetwork information to external systems for modeling and analysis.
The Export Subnetwork tool is used to export information about a subnetwork into a JSON file. That information can then be consumed by outside systems such as outage management and asset tracking programs.
Information in the JSON file can be used to build your own topology locally so you can perform your own analytics, or the information can be exchanged with external systems to help manage assets and operations.
Information about a subnetwork that is exported includes the connectivity and association information as well as information about the controllers that define the subnetwork.
See Export subnetworks for more information about exporting subnetworks.
Export subnetwork controller information
Subnetwork controllers that define subnetworks can be exported using the Export Subnetwork Controllers geoprocessing tool. Information about each subnetwork controller is extracted to a CSV file from the Subnetworks table. The subnetwork controllers can be imported back into another utility network as long as the specific device features that are referenced in the CSV file exist.
See Export subnetwork controllers for more information.
