NOPR on on Automatic Underfrequency Load Shedding and Load Shedding Plans Reliability Standards.

On October 20, 2011, in Docket No. RM11-20, FERC issued a NOPR proposing to approve Reliability Standards PRC-006-1 (Automatic Underfrequency Load Shedding) and EOP-003-2 (Load Shedding Plans). The proposed Reliability Standards establish design and documentation requirements for automatic underfrequency load shedding programs that arrest declining frequency and assist recovery of frequency following system events leading to frequency degradation. The Commission also proposes to approve the related VRFs and VSLs, implementation plan, and effective date proposed by NERC.  Comments on the NOPR are due 60 days after publication in the Federal Register.  To view a copy of the NOPR, click here.
