Today’s LiveWire Spotlight article addresses the latest version of PRC-024-1concerning the “no-trip” settings for generator protective relays during frequency and voltage excursions. It is the first of five recently-issued draft PRC and MOD Standards intended to increase generator availability to the BES without risking equipment damage.

The third draft of PRC-024-1 and its supporting documents have been posted on the NERC website for a 30-day review and successive ballot. Clients have until March 29, 2012 to return feedback to the project team and vote on the Standard.
