ISO/IEC 81346-10 RDS-PS – The New Standard for the Energy Power Sector

The new international standard ISO/IEC 81346-10, already known as RDS-PS, is getting ready to launch in 2021!

The update of current ISO/TS 81346-10 (2015) is making a shift in reference designations (RDS) from current Power Plants (PP) to the more generic Power Systems (PS). The new open standard RDS-PS will be launched as draft international standard (DIS) in April 2021.

As in contrast with the old version of 81346-10, this new RDS-PS aligns with the rules for creating sector specific extensions of RDS. RDS-PS focuses on systems engineering, systems thinking and defines all systems you need to designate power systems of the future!

An RDS-PS Wind Power Example

We had to try it ourselves, so we are happy to share a Wind Power example showcasing RDS-PS with you.

The method and classification in the current draft have been used to create reference designations for the energy power sector eg. the wind power industry. It fits just perfect for wind and other power-to-X systems!

The example includes an overview of an offshore wind farm and an in-depth breakdown. See below, or click on the PDF for a closer look!

Service announcement for the RDS 81346 app

As part of our continued promotion of the RDS 81346 series, we are updating the 81346 smartphone app to include new letter codes from the standard including Part 12 (Construction works).

Unfortunately, this work is creating some technical difficulties, which may prevent log-in, registration of user accounts and refreshing of tables for users of the app.

For the moment, if you are already logged in to the current app, we recommend avoiding logging out or refreshing the tables.

We are working to solve the issue and hope you will bear over with us as we work to have the new updated app ready in the coming weeks.

The maintenance team of part 2 of the ISO/IEC 81346 standard series has now finalized its work and the new edition has been officially published as IEC 81346-2:2019.

The new letter codes of ISO/IEC 81346-2 are already updated in the 81346 app, so they are ready for you.

You may notice a few changes compared with the previous draft version, but from now on the letter codes are fixed. We have already received a lot of positive feedback on the result and the new three letter code seems to be very popular already.

Go ahead and try exploring the new letter codes in the “Technical objects” and “Spaces” in the RDS 81346 app.

The letter codes in the RDS handbook will also be updated with the latest changes. The updated handbook will be available for purchase by January 1st 2020. 

The RDS handbook is also planned to be translated into German and Danish editions, which should be available in the first quarter of 2020.
