Calculation Methods

​Use a calculation method to process the records of the trend log before presenting them in a trend log list or a trend chart. The original records in the trend log are not affected by the calculation method. The calculation method is applied to the trend log records grouped by a specific time interval.

The following calculation methods are available:

  • None

  • Maximum

  • Minimum

  • Average

  • Sum

  • Delta

  • Delta over period

  • Meter consumption

All calculation methods might not be available in all features of EcoStruxure Building Operation.

Note:
  • Adapt the period so it contains the required amount of records to generate a correct calculation.

  • If a calculation method is connected to an interval trend log with delta, make sure that the period and delta are adapted for the calculation.

None

No calculation is performed. The actual values are presented.

Maximum

The maximum value of each period is presented.

Important:

If the log point is offline or no value is produced during the interval, no value is displayed.

Minimum

The minimum value of each period is presented.

Minimum calculation method, schematic

Important:

If the log point is offline or no value is produced during the interval, no value is displayed.

Average

The average of the values in each period is calculated and presented.

Average calculation method, schematic

Important:

If the log point is offline or no value is produced during the interval, no value is displayed.

Sum

The sum of the values in each period is calculated and presented.

Delta

The change to the previous value is calculated and presented.

Delta over Period

The change over a period is calculated and presented. The value at the period limit is often interpolated, based upon the last value in the old period and the first value in the new period.

Meter Consumption

Meter consumption is a delta over period calculation with meter functionality. For more information, see Meter Function .

Period Timestamps in Trend Charts and Trend Log Lists

When a calculated value for a period is presented, the middle of the period is used as the timestamp.

Example:

The calculated value for the period 8:00-9:00 is stamped 8:30. If there is a value at 9:01, the next period is 9:00-10:00, which is stamped as 9:30. The full period may not have passed yet, but the value can be presented even if parts of the period are in the future.
