Here’s a view of what NEMwatch shows at the 16:00 dispatch interval, which should be showing live generation output – but note that:

1)  This is republishing the AEMO’s ‘Initial MW’ data;

2)  Which presumably is being disrupted by the SCADA outage

3)  Which might mean that they are substituting Targets for FinalMW (i.e. assuming all units are following their targets, which does not always happen).

A useful guide to some of the complexities that might arise when this happens were described in a number of articles about what happened on 24th January 2021.

4)  So the short story is that it may be an incorrect or incomplete picture from 14:25 to 16:10 NEM time.

One more interesting point in the day!
