Today’s LiveWire Spotlight looks at the second phase of Project 2007-17, which will subject a subset of reclosing relays to NERC’s Protection System maintenance Reliability Standard. The project team proposes to modify the content of PRC-005-2 in a manner which accommodates the addition of the reclosing function without impacting its compliance framework.

The initial drafts of PRC-005-3 and its Standards Authorization Request have been posted for a 30 day review period. Clients have until May 6, 2013 to return feedback to the project team.
