Today’s LiveWire Spotlight is the first of two articles exploring the definitions and NERC standards governing the derivation and communication of System Operating Limits (SOLs).   The topics of today’s issue are the proposed updates to the NERC Glossary and the impact on Registered Entities who must integrate SOLs into their daily activities.  Part II will look at the latest drafts of three FAC standards that will fundamentally change how Operations and Planning limits are established, distributed, and aligned.

The latest definition of “System Operating Limit” and the impacted standards have been posted on the NERC website for a 45-day review and concurrent ballot.  Comments must be returned to the project team and votes cast by August 3, 2020.
