Today’s LiveWire Spotlight examines NERC’s GMD data reporting application – a portal for Generator Owners and Transmission Owners to submit Geomagnetic Disturbance data.  This is an activity directed by FERC when they approved TPL-007-1 back in 2016, applicable only to those with installed Geomagnetically Induced Current (GIC) recorders and/or magnetometers.

NERC’s GMD Data Reporting application was activated on October 1 – applicable GOs and TOs may now upload any GIC and magnetometer recordings they may have.   Portal training is scheduled for October 14 for entities needing further instruction on its use.
