In accordance with clause 2.8.2(b) of the Retail Market Procedures (Victoria) (RMP-V), AEMO must apportion the consumed energy in relation to each meter that relates to a supply point connected to a distribution pipeline that is not part of a declared distribution system, in accordance with published procedures agreed from time to time between AEMO, the relevant Distributor and other affected Market Participants.
AEMO and industry participants undertook a review of the non- DTS (non-declared transmission systems), which resulted in the identification of the need for a new procedure under the RMP-V in relation to consumed energy to a distribution pipeline that is not part of a declared distribution system.
The new procedure is required to ensure that the non-DTS areas are managed correctly under the RMP-V head of power. This Impact and Implementation Report (IIR) deals with the proposal for a new Procedure.
Prior to the commencement of the NGR and the RMP-V, the Grampians area (previously known as Coastal) which runs between Stawell, Ararat and Horsham and connects to the DTS at Carisbrook was a standalone area that was not included in the AEMO or VENCorp systems. The area is currently operated by SP AusNet. As a result of the operation of the NGR, Grampians and the other non-DTS areas (South Gippsland and Bairnsdale) are now part of the Victorian Retail Market. Therefore, AEMO needs to include all Grampians customers into the AEMO MR to ensure consistent management of FRC in that area.
Once the information is loaded into the AEMO MR, AEMO systems, processes and reports will be configured to receive and produce the information for the non-DTS Grampians area as AEMO’s systems currently do for the other non-DTS areas.
This IIR aims at providing a procedure for Net System Load (NSL) methodology to be applied to the Grampians network.
