The current system restart ancillary services (SRAS) Guidelines were made under clause 3.11.4A and 3.11.4B of the National Electricity Rules as in force up to 30 June 2015.
The current Guidelines include the technical and assessment requirements for SRAS, boundaries of electrical sub-networks and tender procedures. They were applied in the procurement of the SRAS contracts for the period commencing 1 July 2015.
The Rules relating to SRAS were amended as of 1 July 2015 and AEMO will make a new SRAS Guideline under the amended rules before the end of the current contract period.
