Today’s LiveWire Spotlight evaluates the initial Standards Authorization Request (SAR) for NERC Project 2020-06, which looks to add validation steps to MOD-026-1 and MOD-027-1 requiring resource owners and planners to simulate the momentary cessation function in inverter-based generation plants.  The SAR includes a goal to correct ambiguous language in the modeling validation requirements for frequency and voltage control systems that were written with synchronous generation in mind.

The initial draft of the Standards Authorization Request for Project 2020-06: Verifications of Models and Data for Generators and its unofficial comments form have been posted for a 30-day review.  Your feedback is due back to the project team by January 14, 2021.
