Today’s LiveWire Spark looks at the second posting of the nine IRO and TOP standards managed under NERC Project 2014-03. This initiative addresses FERC’s remand of the original standards – ordering the restoration of requirements for TOPs and RCs to plan and operate within all System Operating Limits.

The second draft of the TOP and IRO standards have been posted for a 45 day review and concurrent ballot. Clients have until September 19, 2014 to provide comments back to the drafting team and vote on the standards.
