Today’s LiveWire Spotlight examines Project 2013-04, one of several initiatives launched by NERC in hopes of quickly reducing all outstanding FERC directives – some of which have been open for six years. This project provides further structure in VAR-001 and VAR–002, which address the policies and procedures used to assess the effect of MVAR power flows on voltage and local network stability,

The initial draft of the SAR for Project 2012-05 and the pro-forma versions of the VAR standards have been posted for stakeholder review and concurrent ballot. Clients have until September 3, 2013 to return comments and vote on the postings.
