The slot numbers of two power sequences should be considered independent from each other, i.e., slot number 7 of sequence 1 describes a different slot than slot number 7 of sequence 2. Therefore a slot is only uniquely identified in combination with a sequence ID.
 s4ener:slotActivated  -  If a slot is optional, represents the current status of the slot (true = the slot will be executed, false = the slot will not be executed). If the slot is not optional, this element SHALL be absent.

If supportsReselection is set to FALSE, the device permits the CEM to select a power sequence of an alternative only once.

We use this property to express the following time information in the EEBus/E@h model: - the startTime of the power sequence (in the PowerSequence class). SHALL be present - the endTime of the power sequence (in the PowerSequence class). If the value is available, it SHALL be denoted here.
