Solutions from standards requirement tracking to audit preparation and NERC compliance program improvements.
Utilities face an increasing range of mandatory NERC compliance obligations across all families of reliability standards. Changes are ongoing in areas including Protection Relay and Control (PRC), Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP), Transmission Planning (TPL), System Modelling (MOD), and Facilities Design, Connection and Maintenance (FAC). These continually evolving regulatory requirements require careful monitoring to effectively manage risk. TRC’s subject matter experts help you stay current with and understand the many interrelated NERC requirements across numerous standards families.
Our utility engineers and technical staff provide NERC compliance solutions that address power system studies, facility ratings, protection and controls, maintenance, mandatory testing and physical and cyber security. We work with you, onsite, to analyze your state of compliance; deliver a GAP analysis to help you prepare for a compliance audit; identify weak areas; recommend improvements; and provide technical, procedural, process based or internal control solutions, so you can demonstrate full compliance.
Training and Ongoing Support
We train your staff on compliance spreadsheets, explain delivered documents and provide output clarification. We create, help support and recommend improvements to your compliance management program with the expectation that a well-designed compliance structure works to ensure reliability.
