FERC Approves Reliability Standards IRO-018-1 and TOP-010-1

On September 22, 2016, in Docket RD16-6-000, FERC issued an order accepting NERC’s May 26, 2016 petition requesting approval of 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). Reliability Standards IRO-018-1 and TOP-010-1 require reliability coordinators, transmission operators, and balancing authorities to provide notification to operators of real-time system awareness and monitoring alarm failures.  NERC expects the Reliability Standards to improve real-time situational awareness capabilities and enhance reliable operations.
