Establishing Innovative Processes to Comply with PRC-027-1

There is an increasing demand for utilities to define a relay settings process and check relay coordination which is driven by regulatory requirements such as the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) PRC-027-1 standard. In this white paper, we outline the differences between a manual process and a novel, automated process for fulfilling Requirement 1 (R1) and Requirement 2 (R2) of the PRC-027-1 standard.
