Today’s LiveWire Spotlight looks at the second draft of the Standards Authorization Request (SAR) for Project 2021-02 – which greatly expands the scope of NERC’s initiative to clarify the thresholds at which voltage controlling device statuses are reported to the Transmission Operator.  The SAR team has accepted industry’s feedback that the project should address more than just the Inverter-Based Performance Task Force’s 2020 White Paper findings.  The recommendations from the 2016 periodic review of the voltage and reactive standards and those from the 2021 Odessa Disturbance Report will also be considered.

The second draft of the Standards Authorization Request for Project 2021-02: Modifications to VAR-002 and its unofficial comments form have been posted for a 30-day review.  Your feedback is due back to the project team by April 6, 2022.
