NERC Requests Approval of Reliability Standards IRO-018-1 and TOP-010-1

On May 26, 2016, in Docket No. RD16-6, NERC submitted proposed Reliability Standards IRO-018-1, Reliability Coordinator Real-time Reliability Monitoring and Analysis Capabilities, and TOP-010-1, Real-time Reliability Monitoring and Analysis Capabilities.  The proposed Reliability Standards were developed to improve Real-time situational awareness capabilities and enhance reliable operations by requiring Reliability Coordinators, Transmission Operators, and Balancing Authorities to provide operators with awareness of monitoring and analysis capabilities, including alarm availability, so that operators may take appropriate steps to protect reliability.
