Update to Voltage Stability limits for Murraylink transfers from South Australia to Victoria

AEMO ELECTRICITY MARKET NOTICE

ElectraNet has advised AEMO of revised voltage stability limits for Murraylink transfers from South Australia to Victoria.

Refer to Market Notice 82079.

The existing limit of 160 MW on Murraylink will be replaced with two voltage stability limits. Only one of the limits would apply depending on whether or not the Monash capacitor banks are available and in-service for switching.

The following constraint sets and equations will be implemented at 1000 hrs Wednesday 13th January 2021:
- constraint set S-NIL containing constraint equation SVML^NIL_MH-CAP_ON.
- constraint set S-MH_CAP (renamed from S-NIL_MN-CAP_OFF) containing constraint SVML^MH-CAP_OFF (renamed from SVML^NIL_MH-CAP_OFF).

Constraint set S-NIL will remain invoked at all times.
Constraint set S-MH_CAP will only be invoked when Monash Capacitors are not available for switching and are out of service or if one or both capacitors are out of service.

The existing equation SVML^NIL_160 in the S-NIL set will be removed.

For full details on the factors these constraint equations have now been loaded into AEMO's pre-production systems.

For further details on these new constraint equations please contact diyoni.hoole@aemo.com.au.

New FCAS constraint equations for trip of generators in south-west NSW

AEMO ELECTRICITY MARKET NOTICE

In the event of a trip of the Darlington Point to Wagga (63) 330 kV line a number of generators will be tripped via a transfer tripping control scheme. With the increase in generation in south-west NSW AEMO has identified that the total MWs could potentially exceed the largest NSW generating unit. AEMO will implement new FCAS constraint equations to manage this contingency.

The constraint equations include the impacted generators: Broken Hill solar (BROKENH1), Darlington Point (DARLSF1), Limondale 1 (LIMOSF11), Sunraysia (SUNRSF1) and Silverton (STWF1) and regional FCAS requirements the left-hand side.

The following constraint equations will be implemented at 1000 hrs 4th December 2020.
F_I+TTS_TG_R5
F_I+TTS_TG_R6
F_I+TTS_TG_R60
F_MAIN++TTS_TG_R5
F_MAIN++TTS_TG_R6

Update to Far North Queensland Voltage Stability limits

AEMO ELECTRICITY MARKET NOTICE

Powerlink has advised AEMO of revised voltage stability limits in Far North Queensland.

The revised limits include
-an update to the existing limit for loss of Woree SVC and a new limit for loss of Mt Emerald Windfarm for system normal condition
-two new limits for network reconfiguration

The network is being reconfigured so existing 132 kV lines can be operated at 275 kV - forming the new Ross to Woree (8966) 275 kV feeder. This temporary arrangement is in place to allow for repairs to the Chalumbin to Woree 275kV (877) line.

The following constraint sets and equations will be implemented at 1300 hrs Thursday 3rd December 2020.

- constraint set Q-NIL_FNQ_NORM containing constraint equations Q^NIL_FNQ_MEWF and Q^NIL_FNQ_WRSVC.
- constraint set Q-NIL_FNQ_RECON containing constraint equations Q^NIL_FNQ_858MEWF and Q^NIL_FNQ_8966.

Only one of the above two sets will be invoked at any one time.

- Q-NIL_FNQ_RECON set will be invoked during Far North Queensland network reconfiguration.
- Q-NIL_FNQ_ NORM set will be invoked upon returning to the previous configuration once the repairs are completed in mid-2021.

The existing equation Q^NIL_FNQ in the Q-NIL set will be removed.

For full details on the factors these constraint equations have now been loaded into AEMO's pre-production systems.

For further details on these new constraint equations please contact mya.san@aemo.com.au.

New system normal constraint equation in NSW for voltage collapse at Balranald

AEMO ELECTRICITY MARKET NOTICE

TransGrid has advised AEMO of a new voltage collapse limit in south west NSW, which is required to prevent voltage collapse at Balranald following a loss of a 220 kV line in north-west Victoria (either Bendigo to Kerang, Kerang to Wemen or Buronga to Red Cliffs lines). The limit applies to pre-contingent flow on Balranald to Darlington Point (X5) 220 kV line. The constraint equation is likely to bind when there is high generation in south-west NSW.

The constraint equation includes generators in south-west NSW and north-west Victoria on the left-hand side as well as Murraylink and VIC1-NSW1.

The following constraint equation will be implemented at 1000 hrs Friday 20th November 2020.
N^^N_NIL_3

For full details on the factors this constraint equation has now been loaded into AEMO's pre-production systems.

New system normal constraint equations for thermal overload in south west Victoria

AEMO ELECTRICITY MARKET NOTICE

AEMO has reviewed the thermal limits in south west Vic with the recent addition of new generators in the area. With a further increase in generation capacity in south west Victoria AEMO has identified potential thermal issues on the south west Victorian 500 kV network. AEMO will implement three new constraint equations which will manage loading on the Haunted Gully to Moorabool, Mortlake to Moorabool and Moorabool to Sydenham lines for other 500 kV line trips in south-west Victoria. These constraint equations are unlikely to bind until there is a further increase in generation in south-west Victoria.

The constraint equations include generators in western Victoria and the Heywood and Murraylink interconnectors on the left-hand side.

The following constraint equations will be implemented at 1000 hrs 30th October 2020.
V>>V_NIL_15
V>>V_NIL_16
V>>V_NIL_17

For full details on the factors these constraint equations have now been loaded into AEMO's pre-production systems.
