Today’s LiveWire Spotlight examines PRC-005-6 Draft 1, the initial version of the standard adding Protection System maintenance activities for supervisory elements associated with reclosers in response to FERC Order 803. The standard will apply to voltage-sensing pilot systems, the associated supervisory inputs, and sync-check relays that are part of certain reclosing schemes

The initial draft of PRC-005-6 and its support materials are posted for a 45-day review and concurrent ballot. Clients have until September 16, 2015 to return their comments to the project team and vote on the standard.
