NERC Protection and Control Reliability Standards

The NERC Protection and Control (PRC) Reliability Standards are a set of mandatory regulations that define minimum requirements governing protection and control schemes associated with the Bulk Electric System (BES). These standards typically require extensive review of protection and control schemes, requiring substantial consideration for workflow management and data processing, in addition to the technical engineering effort. Complying with the NERC PRC Standards can pose significant challenges to utilities and other applicable entities, particularly in process and data management aspects.
