NERC Submits Reliability Standards PRC-027-1 and PER-006-1 for Approval

On September 2, 2016, in Docket No. RM16-22, NERC submitted to FERC petitions for the approval of proposed Reliability Standards PRC-027-1, Coordination of Protection Systems for Performance During Faults, and PER-006-1, Specific Training for Personnel.  The petition also includes proposed definitions to be incorporated into the Glossary of Terms Used in NERC Reliability Standards (“NERC Glossary”).  The proposed purpose of the Reliability Standards and NERC Glossary definitions is to: (1) maintain the coordination of Protection Systems installed to detect and isolate Faults on Bulk Electric System (“BES”) Elements, such that those Protection Systems operate in the intended sequence during Faults; and (2) require registered entities to provide training to their relevant personnel on Protection Systems and Remedial Action Schemes to help ensure that the BES is reliably operated.
