With a trip of four large synchronous units in Victoria (all supplying large amounts of inertia) it’s no surprise to see that inertia levels fell significantly this afternoon in Victoria.
First article today, recording a new ‘lowest ever’ point for demand in Victoria (Sun 31st Dec 2023), and possible intervention from AEMO has it looks to drop further, leading to possible grid instability.
Following the low levels of demand over the weekend (Sat 16th and Sun 17th Sept 2023) here’s a few quick notes.
Drawing from GenInsights Quarterly Update for Q4 2022, and the next version of our ez2view software, we take a look at the *current* expectations for closure of Liddell Power Station (within weeks) and Eraring Power Station (in 2025). A segue into this week’s update to the ESOO, perhaps?
Three other reports released by AEMO on 1st December 2022 will also make for interesting reading.
On Sunday 6th November 2022 the NEMwide demand dropped below previous ‘lowest point’ records.
