Project 2013-04 Voltage & Reactive Control
 
St​atus: 
The NERC Board of Trustees adopted VAR-002-3 on May 7, 2014.  The standard will be filed for regulatory approval.
 
Background:
When the first versions of the VAR standards were approved in FERC Order No. 693,[1] the Commission also issued several directives with regard to how to improve the standard.  Each of the  outstanding directives are explained in detail in the technical white paper (see project page).

The informal consensus building for VAR began in February 2013. Specifically, the ad hoc group engaged stakeholders on how best to address the FERC directives, remove paragraph 81 candidates, and implement results-based approaches.  A discussion of the ad hoc group’s consensus building and collaborative activities are also included in the technical white paper.

Based on stakeholder outreach, the VAR-001 and VAR-002 standards have been modified.  The proposed VAR-001 answers most of the FERC directives from Order No. 693, and VAR-002 has been modified to address certain compliance issues today. This posting is soliciting comment on a pro forma standard and a Standard Authorization Request (SAR).
