Today’s LiveWire Spark looks at the latest version of PRC-004-3 – which will combine PRC-004-2a with PRC-003-1 into a single standard addressing Protection System Misoperations. Draft 5 includes two substantive updates – which very well could drive PRC-004-3 above the necessary 2/3 consensus.

The fifth draft of PRC-004-3 and its supporting documentation have been posted on the NERC web site for a 45 day review and concurrent ballot. Clients have until June 30, 2014 to return comments and vote on the standard.
