Identification System for Power Stations (KKS)
The Identification System for Power Stations "KKS" serves to identify plants, sections of plants and items of equipment in any type of power station according to task, type and location. It is to be used by all engineering disciplines for planning, licensing, construction, operation and maintenance.
The KKS, or sections thereof, can be combined with other identification systems in order to meet additional identification requirements.
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.
