242   numDatSetEntries in GOOSE

This tissue has following status: blue

Created: 21 Oct 2005



Clause: 18.1.1


Category: No impact on this part

Issue: numDatSetEntries defines the number of DataSet entries.
What happens when a DataSet entry is a composite attribute (e.g. Pos) ? Is only the high level object counted ? If so, protection provided by this attribute is weak, since the number of primitive attributes within the composite attribute is not checked. Wouldn't the number of primitive DA be a better protection ?

Proposal: The combination of DataSet name and software version is sufficient to
check the contents, this field should be skipped as providing an illusory - and therefore dangerous - protection.
