On September 17, 2015, in Docket No. RM15-8, FERC issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NOPR) to approve proposed Reliability Standard PRC-026-1, Relay Performance During Stable Power Swings. NERC submitted a petition seeking approval of the proposed standard on December 31, 2014. In the NOPR, FERC requested comment on the burden of modifying NERC's proposed standard to include relays with a time delay of 15 cycles or greater in certain circumstances. Depending on the response, FERC may direct NERC to modify the proposed standard.
