NERC Files Petition for Approval of VAR-001-4 and VAR-002-3

On June 9, 2014, in Docket No. RD14-11, NERC filed a petition for FERC’s approval of proposed Reliability Standards VAR-001-4 (Voltage and Reactive Control) and VAR-002-3 (Generator Operation for Maintaining Network Voltage Schedules) as well as the retirement of currently effective Reliability Standards VAR-001-3 and VAR-002-2b. Proposed Reliability Standards VAR-001-4 and VAR-002-3 are intended to replace and improve upon Reliability Standards VAR-001-3 and VAR-002-2b, respectively, to ensure that the Bulk-Power System operates at acceptable voltage levels and that sufficient Reactive Power is available to maintain voltage stability.
