Today’s LiveWire Spotlight addresses the Phase II BES Definition Reference Document – the “how-to” manual containing techniques that will allow industry stakeholders to consistently determine which of their facilities are subject to NERC’s Reliability Standards. The latest version accommodates the updates directed in FERC Orders 773 and 773-A; primarily related to the consideration of sub-100 kV components in the identification of BES facilities.

The draft of the Phase II reference document for the definition of the Bulk Electric System has been posted for an informal 30 day review period. Clients have until February 27, 2014 to submit their comments to the project team.
