Today’s LiveWire Spotlight examines the third draft Standards Authorization Request (SAR) for Project 2019-01: Modifications to PRC-005-6.  The drafting team has made mostly cosmetic changes to the previous version despite enormous stakeholder opposition to its expansion in applicability to BES control systems.  The original draft looked only to extend the standard’s scope to Automatic Voltage Regulator protective functions in synchronous generators.

The Draft 3 Standards Authorization Request for Project 2019-04 and its supporting materials have been posted on the NERC website for a 30-day review period.  Comments must be returned to the SAR drafting team by February 12, 2021.
