Common Format for Naming Time Sequence Data Files (COMNAME)
|Publication Date:||31 October 2011|
This recommended practice defines a procedure for naming time sequence data (TSD) files that originate from digital protection and measurement devices, such as transient data records, event sequences, and periodic data logs. The filename includes, among other features, key portions of the information contained in the file, including, but not limited to, the names of the circuit, substation and recording device, and the date and time of event occurrence.
The purpose of this recommended practice is to define a procedure for naming TSD files, a procedure that is needed to resolve many problems that are associated with reporting, saving, exchanging, archiving, and retrieving large numbers of files. There is no other defined standard for naming such files at this time.
