LiveWire Spotlight on a Draft NERC Guideline – Inverter-Based Resource Performance Today’s LiveWire Spotlight examines a draft NERC Reliability Guideline advising inverter-based (renewable) resource owners and operators on how they can best assure the delivery of Essential Reliability Services to the BPS. Among the topics discussed are momentary cessation, active power frequency control, voltage/reactive power control hierarchy, and the relay functions best suited to prevent equipment damage at a renewable plant.

The initial draft of NERC’s Reliability Guideline on BPS-Connected Inverter-Based Resource Performance has been posted for a 45-day review. Comments must be returned to reliabilityguidelinecomments@nerc.net by June 29, 2018.
