Description: This Protocol Revision Request (PRR) changes the required Black Start Unit Load Carrying Test from once every six (6) years to once every five (5) years.
Reason: North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) requires Black Start Unit Testing at a minimum of every five (5) years. This change reduces ambiguity and risk of a NERC compliance violation.
