Judith Gap Energy LLC (JUGE), Docket No. RC13-1 (October 31, 2012)
Reliability Standard: PRC-004-2a
Issue: JUGE, in its role as a GO, submitted a self-report stating that its experienced one, isolated relay misoperation and JUGE failed to report that relay misoperation with sixty days of submitting its report for the second quarter of 2012.
Finding: The issue was deemed to pose minimal risk to BPS reliability. JUGE did not provide WECC its misoperations analysis and corrective actions plans within the time frame of two months for non-major Remedial Action Schemes and Transmission paths. As compensating measures, JUGE did submit the report the following quarter. In addition, JUGE's generation facility is rated at 135 MW and is not critical to its Transmission Operator.
