Also from GenInsights Quarterly Updates for 2023 Q4, the particular case of Tuesday 31st October 2023 is also worth sharing (and a broad audience understanding).
Returning a focus to GenInsights Quarterly Updates for 2023 Q4, here’s a particular example from Sunday 24th December 2023 worth sharing (and a broad audience understanding).
Looking back at Tuesday 13th February 2024 there’s consistently large aggregate under-performance (compared to Target) across all Semi-Scheduled units in the NEM through daylight hours. The reason for the increased procurement of Regulation Raise.
With Challicum Hills Wind Farm recently celebrating its 20th anniversary, Dan Lee takes a look into the long-term trend of technical and commercial performance of the oldest wind farms in the NEM.
A bout of severe weather for many parts of south-eastern Australia brought challenging weather conditions which appear to have impacted variable renewable energy forecasts for the NEM. The case study delves into forecast differences on the 7th, 8th and 9th of September 2023.
A brief article as a first Case Study looking at Friday 18th August 2023, in conjunction with the compilation of GenInsights Quarterly Updates for 2023 Q3.
A week’s worth of data provides indications of how semi-scheduled generators are using bid MaxAvail to manage dispatch availability.
It is indispensable to understand how the semi-scheduled unit availability gets produced to optimally manage the critical inputs and comprehend dispatch outcomes. This article explains the key inputs and processes, focusing on the dispatch timeframe.
The change to use MaxAvail from the energy bid, for semi-scheduled units, was implemented on 7 August 2023.
AEMO is re-enabling the ‘MaxAvail’ figure in bids for Semi-Scheduled units. It will act as a limit on capacity available, feeding into the NEMDE dispatch process for the unit. We look at how Semi-Scheduled plant have currently been treating MaxAvail in the bid and share some insights.
Today (Tue 23rd May) is the go-live date for AEMO’s EMMS v5.2 – which will contain new data for some market enhancements. Here’s a quick look at where this first change will appear in ez2view, highlighting some considerations for Semi-Scheduled units and self-forecasting.
Inspired by the recent article by Tristan Edis (who referenced the GSD2022 in analysis of curtailment of some wind and solar farms), Allan O’Neil follows on with more analysis of the two main types of curtailment. Allan differentiates these as ‘forced curtailment’ and ‘economic offloading’
Alerted by RenewEconomy on social media that Beryl Solar Farm was offline due to bushfires, I used ez2view to take a quick look.
Another short article today presenting an overview of Aggregate Raw Off-Target (AggROT) for Semi-Scheduled units on 16th February 2021 (the largest incidence of collective over-performance at that time).
Another short article today (from GenInsights Quarterly Update for Q3 2022) presenting an overview of Aggregate Raw Off-Target (AggROT) for Semi-Scheduled units on 23rd August 2022.
Another short article today (also from GenInsights Quarterly Update for Q1 2023) presenting an overview of Aggregate Raw Off-Target (AggROT) for Semi-Scheduled units on Friday 20th January 2023.
A short article today (whilst in the midst of finalising GenInsights Quarterly Update for Q1 2023) presenting an overview of Aggregate Raw Off-Target (AggROT) for Semi-Scheduled units on Friday 3rd February 2023.
We delve deeper into dispatch availability self-forecasts and the assessment process to further enhance our understanding of this important aspect, testing sensitivity to gate closure times and requirements on minimum intervals.
In the fourth instalment of this ongoing case study, Dan Lee maps the locations and contributions of the semi-scheduled units that contributed to the +861MW Aggregate Raw Off-Target that occurred on the afternoon of October 27th 2022.
In Part 3 of this Case Study, we look at the source of the Dispatch Interval Availability forecasts for these units at 17:05 on 27th October 2022 (i.e. Self-Forecast or something else, incl AWEFS/ASEFS).
