Identification System for Power Stations (KKS)
The power plant classification system (KKS) is managed and developed by the VGB Working Panel "Reference Designation and Plant Documentation".
This site is to give an initial impression of the aims, possibilities of application and the general structure of KKS. KKS is in close connection to the national and international standards for classification of power plants (DIN 6779, IEC 61346 in particular). Development aims at complete integration into the international standardisation grid.
KKS application offers scope for development to be defined by project-specific indications and finally leading to a "company-specific KKS". Please take new information to the RDS-PP - Reference Designation System for Power Plants (new designation system).
For a plant classification with KKS in general, the KKS-guidelines (VGB-B105e) and the related application comments (VGB-B106e) are required. For decoding the existing classification the guideline is probably sufficient.
VGB offers both the guideline and the application comments as prints and/or .pdf format [Online-Shop].
Furthermore, a KKS management programme is offered enabling efficient and management of the keys and elaboration of company-specific KKS keys.
