Project 2007-17 Protection System Maintenance and Testing
Related Files

Status:
FERC issued an order approving PRC-005-2 on December 19, 2013.  The order will be effective on February 24, 2014.  The implementation plan for PRC-005-2 includes specific compliance dates and timeframes for each of the Requirements.  For purposes of calculating the time periods in the implementation plan, the regulatory approval date in the U.S. is February 24, 2014.

In addition, FERC directed a change to the Violation Severity Levels for Requirement R1.  These changes are posted for review by the NERC Board, and will be filed with applicable regulatory authorities once the Board has approved them.

Purpose/Industry Need: 
The purpose of standard PRC-005 should remain “To ensure all transmission and generation Protection Systems affecting the reliability of the Bulk Electric System (BES) are maintained and tested.”

In Order 693, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission directed that changes be made to these standards.

These standards should be consolidated into a single standard to reduce the costs of compliance and a number of technical short comings in these standards should be corrected to provide reliable performance when responding to abnormal system conditions.

After PRC-005-2 failed to reach ballot pool approval in the recirculation ballot that ended on 6/30/11, the drafting team revised the standard. The Standards Committee authorized re-initiating the project with a posting of the SAR and revised standard for a 45-day comment period, with an initial ballot of the standard conducted during the last 10 days of the comment period.
