FERC Issues Order No. 729 Approving Six Modeling, Data, and Analysis Reliability Standards

On November 24, 2009, in Docket No. RM08-19-000, et al., FERC issued Order No. 729 approving six Modeling Data, and Analysis (MOD) Reliability Standards submitted to the Commission by NERC. The approved Reliability Standards require certain users, owners, and operators of the Bulk-Power System to develop consistent methodologies for the calculation of available transfer capability or available flowgate capability. The Commission, however, directs NERC to develop certain modifications to the MOD Reliability Standards. To read the entire text of FERC’s Order No. 729, click here.
