K10SCC21 Distributed Resources Standard CoordinationBen KazimierMark SiiraTo interface with SCC21/P1547 in order to reduce unnecessary delays by getting PSRC input into the process without having to wait for after-the-fact coordination.
K12P1032 Guide for Protecting Transmission Static Var CompensatorsSatish SamineniMartin BestTo work jointly with Substations WG I9 to write a guide for protecting transmission static var compensators. PSRC WG K12 will provide guidance and review on topics that are already covered in other IEEE guides to prevent overlap and identify areas where interpretation of existing guides is necessary to meet the specific application challenges unique to transmissions static var compensators.
