Quarterly regulatory and policy updates

We are in the midst of a radical change to the fundamental operation of the National Electricity Market (NEM). As the grid becomes more interconnected, distributed energy resources become more prevalent and generation transitions toward low-carbon energy sources, we are seeing unprecedented levels of regulatory and policy changes. At Cornwall Insight Australia, we facilitate the […]

Calling an audible: Voltage control changing the playbook

Voltage instability concerns are becoming more relevant in the NEM as the system continues to incorporate higher levels of variable asynchronous generation in “electrically weak” areas of the network. Most recently, AEMO (on advice from TransGrid) implemented a new/revised system normal constraint equation in NSW for voltage collapse at Darlington Point on loss of the […]
