Each network is related to a predefined resource type. This is known as the net type. The network then is the system through which resources travels from elements of supply to elements of demand. Each network of a separate type is a separate entity, and networks of different types do not affect each other. The following network types are currently available:
Net Functions and Net Loads both reference to a Net Type. Net Lines are part of the Net Type based on their Net Function. Net Clusters and Net Node relate to other Net items (Net Loads and Net Lines), and can therefore be part of multiple Net Types.
