Draft 1 of EOP-010-1 and its support documentation has been posted on the NERC web site for a 45 day review and concurrent ballot. Clients have until August 8, 2013 to return comments and cast their votes on the standard.
Today’s LiveWire Spotlight looks at the initial posting of the Stage 1 Geomagnetic Disturbance standard. It is the first of two stages of standards development intended to minimize the risk to the Bulk Electric System from rare, but intense solar weather. Stage 2 will address GMD vulnerability assessments and the actions taken to eliminate flaws.
