Project 2009-31 Interpretation of TOP-001-1 R8
The interpretation was approved by the NERC Board of Trustees on May 12, 2010.

Purpose/Industry Need:
Florida Municipal Power Pool (FMPP) is seeking clarification as to whether it is the Balancing Authority's responsibility to immediately take corrective action to restore Real Power Balance and whether it is the TOP's responsibility to immediately take corrective action to restore Reactive Power Balance.

In accordance with the Reliability Standards Development Procedure, the interpretation must be posted for a 30-day pre-ballot review, and then balloted.  There is no public comment period for an interpretation.  Balloting will be conducted following the same method used for balloting standards.  If the interpretation is approved by its ballot pool, then the interpretation will be appended to the standard and will become effective when adopted by the NERC Board of Trustees and approved by the applicable regulatory authorities.  The interpretation will remain appended to the standard until the standard is revised through the normal standards development process.  When the standard is revised, the clarifications provided by the interpretation will be incorporated into the revised standard.
