Today’s LiveWire Spotlight is the second of two articles exploring the definitions and NERC standards governing the derivation and communication of System Operating Limits (SOLs).   The topics of last Thursday’s email were the proposed updates to the NERC Glossary and the impact on Registered Entities who must integrate SOLs into their daily activities.  Part II looks at the latest drafts of three FAC standards that will fundamentally change how Operations and Planning limits are established, distributed, and aligned.

The updated drafts of the System Operating Limit standards and their supporting materials have been posted on the NERC website for a 45-day review period and concurrent ballot.  Comments must be returned and votes cast by August 3, 2020.
