Production Control System

Yokogawa's CENTUM VP R5.02 production control system has been successful in gaining VGB-R170C requirements from VGB PowerTech e.V.: the independent technical association representing the interests of power plant operators and manufacturers. These requirements and rules have been consistently implemented into the CENTUM VP R5.02 system, and were checked and certified by TÜV NORD in May 2013 for compliance. VGB PowerTech has created rules and regulations in the form of directive VGB-R170C, where the demands to comply with a key technology standards with high availability and reliability are described. The rules outline complementary measures to prevent key technology failures and define function-related documentation of power-plant control and instrumentation in line with operating requirements. New VGB-R170C features in the CENTUM VP R5.02 control system include segregation of process technology sections, implementation of the KKS identification system and the VGB control function hierarchy, symbolic representation of functions, and document interlinking.
