Today’s LiveWire Spotlight deals with a Standards Authorization Request (SAR) submitted by a NERC Registered Entity (Tri-State Generation and Transmission) looking for clarity surrounding the derivation of generator Facility Ratings in FAC-008-5.  Tri-State believes that there are updates necessary to deal with discrepancies affecting the ratings of jointly owned equipment and those that are limited by turbine and other non-electrical equipment capacities

The initial draft of the Standards Authorization Request for Project 2021-08: Modifications to FAC-008 and its unofficial comments form have been posted for a 45-day review.  Your feedback is due back to the SAR team by January 27, 2022.
