WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission took action on two items related to reliability at its open meeting today.
FERC issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NOPR) proposing to approve Reliability Standards PRC- 027-1 – Coordination of Protection Systems for Performance During Faults and PER- 006-1 – Specific Training for Personnel. These proposed reliability standards would maintain the coordination of protection systems installed to detect and isolate faults on bulk electric system elements and ensure that personnel are trained on specific topics essential to reliability to perform or support real-time operations of the bulk electric system. In addition, FERC proposes to direct NERC to develop certain modifications to proposed Reliability Standard PRC-027-1 to ensure that applicable entities will perform, as a baseline, a study demonstrating proper coordination of its protection systems.
