Statement on FERC Meeting Action
The North American Electric Reliability Corporation is pleased with the action taken by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission at its January 22 open meeting to approve the protection system and automatic reclosing maintenance standard.
 
PRC-005-3 – Protection System Maintenance and Automatic Reclosing Maintenance promotes reliability by ensuring that certain reclosing relays are subject to the standard’s mandatory maintenance requirements. In addition to approving the standard, FERC directed NERC to modify the standard to include supervisory relays associated with applicable reclosing relay schemes.
 
NERC will respond to FERC’s directive and appreciates FERC’s approval of PRC-005-3. NERC looks forward to the continued work toward assuring the reliability of the North American bulk power system.
