Today’s LiveWire Spotlight looks at FERC Order 823, which publicly announces the Commission’s approval of PRC-026-1. When it takes effect, the standard will establish minimum trip settings for load relays, so that they will not react too quickly to stable and unstable power swings.

PRC-026-1 will begin to take effect in the U.S. on 1/1/18. By that time, each Planning Coordinator must have identified the applicable BES Elements impacted by the standard and notified the Generator/Transmission Owner accordingly.
