Today’s LiveWire Spotlight analyzes FERC Docket RD14-5-000 – which approves without challenge MOD-032-1 and MOD-033-1 (the “MOD B” standards). Once in-effect, they will replace all six existing MOD standards governing steady-state/dynamics modeling and simulation.

The approval of the MOD B standards approximately marks the one-third point in the completion of the NERC initiatives coordinating planning/equipment models. The MOD A and MOD C projects are still pending FERC’s approval.
