Entities registered as a NERC Generator Operator (GOP) are responsible for complying with 39 NERC non-cyber security requirements regardless of who is performing the work. Requirements are grouped into standards, and then categories. The categories include Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP), Communications (COM), Emergency Preparedness and Operations (EOP), Interconnection Reliability Operations and Coordination (IRO), Protection and Control (PRC), Transmission Operations (TOP), and Voltage and Reactive (VAR).
The GOP can face penalties when it’s non-compliant with NERC requirements. While most owners are aware of the need for such compliance, in our experience, there is less clarity on what this really entails. This presentation will address a few of the NERC requirements that have been identified as opportunities to improve compliance at wind-power facilities. These opportunities deal with TOP-001, Transmission Operations; CIP-001, Sabotage Reporting; CIP-002, Critical Cyber Asset Identification; and COM-002, Communications. This webinar summarizes a few requirements and explains how they affect the wind industry.
