The CWG determined that based on the study, the CWG recommended to the WSC that the Project WECC-0099 be retired and new SAR developed. On February 11, 2014, the WECC Standards Committee (WSC) approved Standard Authorization Request WECC-0107 Power System Stabilizer (PSS) Design and Performance. This SAR will develop PSS related materials into a WECC Regional Reliability Standard (RRS). Workgroup Activities
