A subnetwork controller is a type of utility network feature from which a resource is delivered or collected, such as a circuit breaker (electric), town border stations (gas), or water towers (water). A subnetwork controller type is defined for each domain network, and when a domain network’s tier is configured, that tier is defined to use one or more of the controllers in the domain network. Certain asset group and asset type features in the device feature class are configured to allow features to be set as subnetwork controllers; this done by assigning a utility network category. Subnetwork controllers are set for device features using a specific terminal and are used as start or end points for trace analysis.
