Today’s LiveWire Spotlight looks at MOD-026-2 Draft 2, which looks to defuse key issues raised in the feedback to the original draft of the consolidated Facility model validation and verification standard.  The project team hopes to significantly improve upon the 27.85% approval level achieved in Version 1 by making several key updates.  However, they do not accommodate requests to drop two highly controversial requirements that will keep approval levels low until an acceptable alternative can be found.

The second draft of MOD-026-2: Verification of Dynamic Models and Data for BES Connected Facilities and its supporting documents have been posted for a 45-day review.  Your feedback and ballots are due back to the project team by January 18, 2023.
