Today’s LiveWire Spotlight is concerned with the initial posting of PRC-006-2, the modified underfrequency load shedding standard. It has been developed in response to FERC Order 763 – addressing a concern that the time allotted by PCs to implement corrections after a UFLS performance assessment would not be binding to the affected Distribution Providers and Transmission Owners.

The initial draft of PRC-006-2 is posted for a 45 day industry stakeholder review and concurrent ballot. Clients have until October 8, 2014 to return comments back to the project team and vote on the standard.
