This paper is a summary of the IEEE Power System Relaying Committee report. It describes the performance of protective relays during wide-area stressed power system conditions. First, the behavior of protection functions during dynamic operating conditions is described. Then, the lessons learned from studying recent wide area disturbances, as well as the operational history of protection performance during stressed system conditions, are analyzed. Finally, methods of implementing protective relay functions to prevent further propagation of system-wide disturbances are presented.
