FERC Approves Motion to Defer Implementation of Pending Versions of Reliability Standard PRC-005

On December 4, 2015, in Docket Nos. RM14-8, RD15-3, and RM15-9, FERC issued an order accepting NERC’s November 13, 2015 motion to defer the implementation of certain Reliability Standards.  This order will defer the implementation of Commission-approved Reliability Standards PRC-005-3, PRC-005-3(i), and PRC-005-4 until after the Commission issues a final order on Reliability Standard PRC-005-6, Protection System, Automatic Reclosing, and Sudden Pressure Relaying Maintenance.  PRC-005-6 would revise the standard to include the supervisory devices associated with certain automatic reclosing relays as part of applicable entities’ required protection system maintenance programs.
