Status The drafting team subdivided these standards into two sets. Set One contains 12 standards: eight (MOD-024, MOD-025, PRC-003, PRC-004, PRC-005, PRC-020, PRC-021, PRC-022) were approved by a Ballot Pool on February 3 and approved for adoption by the NERC Board of Trustees on February 7, 2006; two standards (PRC-002 and PRC-018) were posted for comment through January 17 and the drafting team is considering the comments; two standards (PRC-019 and PRC-024) require field testing.
Set Two contains seven standards: three (EOP-005, MOD-013, MOD-016) were posted for a ten-day ballot period through March 30, 2006; three (VAR-001, VAR-002, VAR-003) were posted for comment through April 15, 2006 and are under review by the drafting team; and two (MOD-026, MOD-027) require field testing.
The drafting team is posting Draft 4 Set 1 (PRC-002 and PRC-018) for a 30-day comment period through May 3, 2006. Ballot Pools approved EOP-005-1, MOD-013-1, and MOD-016-1 on April 26, 2006. The NERC Board of Trustees approved these standards for adoption at its May 2, 2006 meeting.
Purpose/Industry Need Certain planning standards that were part of the Phase III- IV NERC compliance program were not included in the Version 0 reliability standards. The Version 0 drafting team, supported by industry comments, realized it could not achieve industry consensus on these specific standards in the timeframe or within the scope of the Version 0 standards project. These standards are important, nonetheless, as they contain critical reliability requirements in support of recommendations from the NERC and U.S./Canada Power System Outage Task Force reports on the August 14, 2003 blackout. Recognizing the importance of these standards, the NERC board resolved on October 15, 2004, that: "A satisfactory resolution of the issues regarding Phases III and IV of the planning standards would be to: (1) develop reliability standards covering the Phase III and Phase IV issues separate from the Version 0 effort, using the NERC standards development process; (2) have the Planning Committee expeditiously complete the drafting of the proposed standards needed to address the Phase III and Phase IV issues, and move those standards through the NERC standards development process as promptly as possible, but not later than the May 2005 board meeting." This SAR proposes the development of reliability standards that address the disturbance monitoring and reporting requirements of those Phase III- IV planning standards.
