RDS-PP - Reference Designation System for Power Plants
RDS-PP is the further development for the proven identification system for power plants KKS. Compared to this, it provides a number of innovations and extensions, coming up for today's requirements for designation of power plants components. In contrast to the KKS, RDS-PP was enhanced with a view on new forms of power generation, e. g. decentralized plants.
The new designation system is based on international standards, especially to DIN ISO/TS 16952-10, DIN EN 81346-2, related to the structuring principles and the designation systematic. The VGB Working Panel "Reference Designation and Plant Documentation" takes an active part in the development of the RDS-PP and is underlying national and international standards.
The international harmonization of the RDS-PP and its constant structuring help to avoid errors and misunderstandings during the designation whereby the plant reliability is increased.
RDS-PP is - same as the KKS - a common standard for operators and manufacturers of power plants. The world-wide acceptation opens further potentials for long-term cost reductions when planning, construction and operating of power plants.
