Following recent online discussions, Bruce Miller has produced this in-depth analysis of frequency behavior in th NEM.
Allan O’Neil provides an explainer about how small deviations in supply and demand are managed in the NEM, in order to help us understand the apparent swings in frequency that we noted in QLD last Friday.
Another article today presenting 12 hours of history of System Frequency (to ~14:00 on Friday 3rd February 2023) with a few questions added. Comments welcome!
Last week the AEMO released a preliminary report into the trip of the South East – Tailem Bend 275 kV line that caused SA to be islanded from the rest of the NEM for over a week.
Dan Lee takes a quick look at 5-second frequency data to show SA’s separation from the rest of the NEM and the ensuing frequency swings on late Saturday afternoon.
A quick note following AEMC publication of final determination on Fast Frequency Response (FFR).
A deeper look at the frequency data (our own, and also from some others) reveals a number of other interesting things about what happened on Tuesday 25th May 2021 in Queensland.
A quick synopsis of some market reforms at the AEMC relating to system frequency.
One of the many data sets being crunched as part of our analytical efforts underpinning the development of ‘GenInsights21’ is system frequency. In this short article today, we share some initial observations on how it has been changing.
Our guest author Stephen Sproul looks at how the Dalrymple Battery Energy Storage System (BESS), currently the only source of virtual inertia on the NEM, responded to the November 2019 SA islanding event.
Guest author (and power system control specialist), Kate Summers, looks at what’s changed since she published a paper on frequency control in the NEM back in January 2017.
