Today’s LiveWire Spotlight looks at the second posting of the NERC term describing Remedial Action Schemes (RAS) that detect electric system abnormalities and take automatic corrective actions to limit the wide-area impact. It consists of six inclusions and thirteen exclusions that distinguish between a RAS and a complex Protection System.

The second draft of the definition of a Remedial Action Scheme has been posted for a 45 day review and concurrent ballot. Clients have until July 25, 2014 to provide comments back to the drafting team and vote on the proposed updates.
