The topic of today’s LiveWire Spotlight article is Project 2012-INT-02, which responds to a request by NERC’s System Protection and Control Subcommittee to help define the relay failure scenarios that must be assessed as part of contingency planning. Although the project applies mostly to Planning Coordinators and Transmission Planners, Protection System owners may be impacted as well.

The Request for Interpretation of TPL-003/004 and its response have been posted on the NERC website for industry stakeholder review. Clients have until July 19, 2012 to return comments to the project team.
