West Murray issue and limit on Murraylink

AEMO ELECTRICITY MARKET NOTICE

Refer to market notice 77189

Following further technical assessment of the issues impacting grid performance and operational stability in the West Murray region AEMO has identified that limiting the flow on the Murraylink interconnector from SA to Vic is no longer required.

The constraint set I-SVML_095 will be revoked at 1200 hrs on 15th Octber 2020.

Update to Vic to NSW voltage collapse limit

AEMO ELECTRICITY MARKET NOTICE

Refer to market notice 77600

AEMO has completed work on a revised system normal voltage stability limit at Victoria for flows from Victoria to New South Wales. This limit is to manage voltage collapse around Murray for the loss of all APD potlines.

The constraint equation includes generators in south-west NSW and north-west Victoria on the left-hand side as well as VIC1-NSW1. Full details on the limits advice are published on the AEMO website: https://www.aemo.com.au/energy-systems/electricity/national-electricity-market-nem/system-operations/congestion-information-resource/limits-advice

The constraint is most likely to bind when there is low Vic demands and high transfers to NSW. When it binds it will restrict Vic to NSW transfers and southern NSW generation.

This revised limit will be implemented to the following constraint equation at 1000 hrs Friday 9th October 2020.
V^^N_NIL_1

New constraint for UFLS in South Australia

AEMO ELECTRICITY MARKET NOTICE

As part of a suite of recommendations to restore under frequency load shedding (UFLS) capability and mitigate risks, AEMO is updating and expanding existing network constraints to keep power flows across the Heywood interconnector within limits that allow South Australia's UFLS to operate effectively if needed.

The following constraint equation will be added to the South Australian system normal set at 1100 hrs Friday 9th October 2020.
V_S_HEYWOOD_ULFS

A fact sheet on the new constraint equation is available here: https://aemo.com.au/-/media/files/initiatives/der/2020/heywood-ufls-constraints-fact-sheet.pdf

Support Information:
For further details on this constraint equation please contact the AEMO Information and Support Hub supporthub@aemo.com.au or call 1300 236 600.

Update to Vic to NSW voltage collapse limit

AEMO ELECTRICITY MARKET NOTICE

Refer to market notice 63893

AEMO is currently revising the existing voltage collapse constraint equation for Victoria to NSW transfers for the simultaneous loss of all APD potlines. The existing equation requires a review for record low Victorian demands and high transfers to NSW. To reduce the instances of AEMO invoking discretionary limits while this review is being completed an offset of 250 MW will be applied to the existing constraint equation.

This change will occur at 1400 hrs 9th September 2020.

The following constraint equation will be modified:
V^^N_NIL_1

For further details on this new constraint equation please contact ben.blake@aemo.com.au

New West Murray issue and new limit on Murraylink

AEMO ELECTRICITY MARKET NOTICE

The West Murray region continues to be a challenging area to manage power system security. New technical issues impacting grid performance and operational stability have been identified following review of the Ararat to Crowlands 220 kV line trip on 20 August 2020.

To manage power system security AEMO will be limiting the flow on the Murraylink interconnector from SA to Vic to 95 MW. This will be implemented from 1200 hrs on 26 August 2020 with the following IDs:

Constraint Set ID: I-SVML_095
Constraint Equation ID: SVML_095

The limit will remain in place until 16 October 2020 unless otherwise notified. AEMO will provide updates on this matter as issues are further explored and potential solutions identified.
