Owing to the national and international standardization process, the KKS Identification System for Power Stations (hereinafter referred to as “KKS”) is being replaced by the RDS-PP® Reference Designation System for Power Plants based on DIN ISO 81346-10. Thus, RDS-PP® is thus considered to be a generally accepted good engineering practice and can be applied in planning, construction, operation and dismantling of energy supply plants and equipment as a an unambiguous identification system.

Existing power plants with identification coding to KKS will not be re-coded to RDS-PP®. Consequently, it will be necessary to continue to apply the KKS system in the event of additions to existing plants and conversion measures, I&C retrofits etc.

Technical progress made over time called for adjustments to the KKS rules. Some examples were added to the KKS guidelines and the KKS keys were updated. The examples given in the KKS guidelines are intended only for explanation of the defined rules.

The KKS Rules as a code of practice consist of the KKS Guidelines and the KKS Keys.

The Application Explanations (VGB-B 106e parts A, B1, B2, B3 and B4 covering general application, mechanical engineering, civil engineering, electrical engineering and process control and instrumentation, 2004) and the Equipment Unit Code and Component Code Reference (VGB-B 105.1, 1989) are not updated any more.

KKS Identification System for Power Stations: The complete KKS covers the publications VGB-S-811-01-2018-01-EN, VGB-B 105.1 (only in German language), VGB-B 106e and VGB-S-832-00-2016-04-DE-EN.

Additionally the VGB-B 108 d/e "Guideline Rules for the creation of denominations and their application for power plant engineering" and VGB-S-891-00-2012-06-DE-EN "VGB abbreviation-catalogue for power plant technology" are recommended.

The current edition of the "KKS Identification System for Power Stations" is the VGB-Standard "VGB-S-811-01-2018-01-EN", For existing installations the VGB-B 105e may be applicable.

Key Part: The Key Part, consisting of the Function Keys, Equipment Unit Keys, and Component Keys, is available for purchase as an Excel® file.
