Today’s LiveWire Spotlight addresses the updated versions of VAR-001-4 and VAR-002-3 which look to streamline NERC’s voltage and reactive requirements. The new postings grant a wide-ranging amount of flexibility to the Transmission Operator in the determination of exemptions to the voltage or reactive power schedule.
