Background

Reliability Standard TPL-007-2 – Transmission System Planned Performance for Geomagnetic Disturbance Events was approved by industry in 2017 and filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on January 22, 2018 and the Canadian authorities on February 27, 2018. The first version of the standard, TPL-007-1, requires entities to assess the impact to their systems from a defined event referred to as the “Benchmark GMD Event." The second version of the standard adds new Requirements R8, R9, and R10 to require responsible entities to assess the potential implications of a “Supplemental GMD Event" on their equipment and systems in accordance with the FERC's directives in Order No. 830.

More information and historical information can be found on the Project 2013-03 Geomagnetic Disturbance Mitigation project page.
