Today’s LiveWire Spotlight is on the NERC Alert issued earlier this year concerned with severe electromagnetic threats to the Bulk Electric System. Renewed interest in the subject was intensified recently by a series of solar eruptions of historical magnitude. The Alert outlines operational and planning actions that industry can take to mitigate severe geomagnetic disturbances.
This Alert has been issued as an advisory only, so formal follow-up action is not required. As yet, no timeframe has been set for the development of a NERC Project to implement its recommendations.
