On January 22, 2018, in Docket No. RM18-8-000, NERC submitted proposed Reliability Standard TPL-007-2 (Transmission System Planned Performance for Geomagnetic Disturbance Events). TPL-007-2 is proposed to address the Commission’s directives in Order No. 830. In Order No. 830, the Commission directed NERC to modify Reliability Standard TPL-007-1, the Geomagnetic disturbance (GMD) planning standard. Proposed Reliability Standard TPL-007-2 requires owners and operators of the Bulk Power System (BPS) to conduct vulnerability assessments of the potential impact of defined GMD events on the BPS.
