FERC Issues Order Approving Regional Reliability Standard

On December 20, 2012 in Docket RM12-9, FERC issued a final rule in which it approved regional Reliability Standard PRC-006-SERC-01 (Automatic Underfrequency Load Shedding Requirements). Regional Reliability Standard PRC-006-SERC-01 is designed to ensure that automatic underfrequency load shedding protection schemes, designed by planning coordinators and implemented by applicable distribution providers and transmission owners in the SERC Reliability Corporation Region, are coordinated to mitigate the consequences of an underfrequency event effectively.
