Order Effective

Enforcement Date

Background:
This project was initiated to address an existing “fill in the blank” standard. FERC did not approve or remand PRC-002-1 in Order 693 because the standard contained requirements that applied to the Regional Reliability Organization and did not specifically identify performance requirements for registered entities. FERC did approve PRC-018-1 in Order 693. Similar to PRC-002-1, PRC-018-1 contained Regional Reliability Organization requirements, but FERC stated that the requirements are clear enough to be enforced. This project intends to address FERC concerns in Order 693, specifically the “fill in the blank” aspects in both standards. A SAR to initiate the project was initially posted in 2007 with a scope of reviewing both standards and merging them into one replacement standard. A standard drafting team was appointed by the Standards Committee in 2007, who drafted PRC-002-2, which was posted for a 45-day formal comment period in early 2009. The standard was posted for initial comments during February and March of 2009. In 2010 the Standards Committee decided to prioritize its work, which resulted in moving Project 2007-11 Disturbance Monitoring to informal development. Responses to the comments for the 45-day formal posting were developed, but not posted because of the change to informal development. In its 2013 work plan, the Standards Committee changed the status to formal development as part of the effort to address pending projects.

The drafting team revised the SAR to focus the project on a results-based approach to the capture of data, instead of prescriptive requirements on equipment necessary to capture the data. The drafting team believed that it was best to describe the performance requirements (using a risk-based approach) rather than prescribing necessary equipment. Also, the Reliability Coordinator and Planning Coordinator were added as applicable entities to ensure that the responsibility for specifying and collecting needed disturbance data can be appropriately assigned. The revised SAR was approved by the Standards Committee on May 2, 2013 to be posted for a 30-day informal comment period.


Purpose/Industry Need:
To establish requirements for collection and reporting of disturbance data to facilitate analyses of events and verify system models. This project involves modifying two standards:

  • PRC-002 — Define and Document Disturbance Monitoring and Equipment Requirements
 ·    PRC-018 — Disturbance Monitoring Equipment Installation and Data

The project involves replacing "fill-in-the-blank" requirements currently assigned to the Regional Reliability Organization, with continent-wide requirements that are applicable to other functional entities. As envisioned, each region will supplement PRC-002 with a regional standard that includes additional requirements. The project also involves bringing the standards into conformance with the latest version of the Reliability Standards Development Procedure and the ERO Rules of Procedure.
