============ Introduction ============ PyCIM is a Python implementation of the IEC Common Information Model. Current features include: - Support for IEC 61970 15v13 and IEC 61968 11v05, - Legacy support for IEC 61970 14v15 and IEC 61968 10v31, - Profiles of the CIM, including: - Common Power Systems Model (CPSM) (CIM v14) - Common Distribution Power System Model (CDPSM) (CIM v14 and v15) - European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity (ENTSO-E) (CIM v14), - Class and attribute documentation integrated as Python doc-strings, - Transparent bi-directional reference handling using Python properties, - CIM RDF/XML parsing and serialisation according to IEC 61970-552. Installation ------------ 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-XX.XX.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 Quick start ----------- To parse a CIM RDF/XML file:: In: import logging In: logging.basicConfig(level=logging.INFO) In: from PyCIM import cimread In: 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:: In: from PyCIM import cimwrite In: cimwrite(d, 'path/to/output_file.xml') INFO:PyCIM.RDFXMLWriter:5660 CIM objects serialised in 1.14s.
