After being developed over a couple of months the Substation Refinement
proposal is now ready for comments
The proposal is really two proposals in one.
1: New "power=substation" tag for all substations.
First of all it aims at fixing the power=sub_station versus
power=station dispute. The power=station tag was really created by
accident (German for substation is "Station") whereas "power station" in
English actually is a synonym for a power plant. And "sub_station" is
wrongly spelled. Thus the proposal introduces the new tag
power=substation for all types of substations to replace the two former
2: New attributes for substations, new tagging scheme for substation
The proposal introduces new attributes substation=* and location=* for
substations. Further it introduces or improves the following tags:
power=switchgear, line=busbar, line=bay, power=switch,
power=transformer, power=converter, power=compensator. Various
attributes for these tags are also defined.
It is possible that a future vote on the proposal will be split into two
separate votes according to the 'subproposals'.
