Today’s LiveWire Spotlight looks at a new Standards Authorization Request (SAR) announcing the launch of a project to create a Canadian-specific version of the Geomagnetic Disturbance (GMD) Mitigation standard. The SAR looks to define alternative Benchmark GMD Events and/or Supplemental GMD Events specific to Canadian geographical and geological characteristics

The initial Standards Authorization Request for Project 2018-01 “Canadian-specific Revisions to TPL-007-2” has been posted on the NERC website for a 30-day review period. Comments must be returned to the project team by April 30, 2018.
