Today’s LiveWire Spotlight examines the sixth of six NERC Security Guideline updates sponsored by the Reliability and Security Technical Committee (RSTC) dealing with cyber security.  This one offers NERC perspectives to state utility commissions and Registered Entities looking to adopt IEEE 1547-2018 — specifically the unit ride-through and control capabilities of Distributed Energy Resources  and their aggregated support functions which are vital to BPS reliability.

The initial draft of the NERC Reliability Guideline on Perspectives on the Adoption of IEEE 1547-2018 Version 2 has been posted for a 45-day industry stakeholder review.  Comments must be returned to John.Skeath@nerc.net  by November 18, 2022.
