Today’s LiveWire Spotlight evaluates FERC’s Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NOPR) to approve the replacement of PRC-001-1.1(ii) with PER-006-1 and PRC-027-1.  The Commission also proposes to direct an update that will close a reliability gap related to the initial baseline assessment of a Protection System’s operating sequence.

FERC’s proposal to approve PER-006-1 and PRC-027-1 are posted for a 60-day public review.  Clients have until January 22, 2018 to submit comments regarding the additional requirements that the Commission may call for if their concerns are not addressed.
