Summary: Staff Meeting on Single Point of Failure on Protection Systems (RM10-6) (Washington, DC)
Description: The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the reliability implications to the interconnected transmission system associated with a single point of failure on protection systems. In Order No. 754, the Commission approved NERC’s interpretation of Requirement R1.3.10 of Commission-approved transmission planning Reliability Standard TPL-002-0 (System Performance Following Loss of a Single Bulk Electric System Element). In addition, the Commission stated that it believes there is an issue concerning the study of a single point of failure on protection systems. The Commission directed Commission staff to meet with NERC and appropriate subject matter experts to explore this reliability concern, including how it can best be addressed, and identify any additional actions necessary to address the matter.
