Overview

On 1 November 2016 the AEMC received a rule change request from AEMO in relation to the provision of modelling data.

On 1 November 2016 the AEMC received a rule change request from AEMO in relation to the provision of modelling data.

The rule change request would amend the National Electricity Rules (NER) to require generators and network service providers (NSPs) to provide AEMO with additional and more detailed models of generation systems and other equipment.

Access to this more detailed data may enable more effective studies of the power system, supporting more efficient planning and operation.

However, generators and NSPs may face costs to provide these models. Issues may also arise with the commercial sensitivity of the model information being released.

 The AEMC has published a consultation paper setting out the issues raised by the rule change request. Submissions on the rule change request are due by 12 April 2017.
