A domain network is the primary classification of a utility network, representing the utility system type, such as electricity, gas, or water. This might be further classified as either a distribution or transmission domain network, such as a water transmission domain network and a water distribution domain network within the same utility network. All domain networks in a utility network share the same structure network, connecting devices and lines by common structures. Each domain network contains a tier along with a subnetwork controller type to indicate whether the subnetwork controllers are acting as sinks (resource flow is toward the controller) or sources (resource can only flow away from or exit the controller).
