This Annex includes examples referenced in the normative sections.

The examples in Figure B.1 and Figure B.2 illustrate the use of FunctionalGroups:

The Properties of a TopologyElement, like Manufacturer, SerialNumber, will usually be sufficient as identification. If other Parameters or even Methods are required, all elements needed shall be organised in a FunctionalGroup called Identification. Figure B.3 illustrates the Identification FunctionalGroup with an example.

Note that companion standards are expected to define the Identification contents for their model.
