Today’s LiveWire Spotlight examines NERC’s recommendation to discontinue the use of BES frequency modifications to maintain the accuracy of electric clocks. Once approved, this action will result in the retirement of NERC standard BAL-004-0 and NAESB standard WEQ-006.

The white paper supporting the rationale to retire BAL-004-0 and WEQ-006 are posted for a 45-day review and concurrent ballot. Clients have until November 12, 2015 to return their comments to the project team and vote on the proposal.
