The Impact of Small Scale Solar PV on Power Quality: An Empirical Study

Watch

2020 South Australian Power Network Islanding Event

On 31 January 2020 destructive weather conditions caused a loss of transmission towers in Victoria. This in turn resulted in the formation of an electrical island including the whole South Australia power system. Islanding of this network having a very high penetration of wind and solar energy sources was an interesting test of the capabilities of renewable energy.  This presentation discusses the response of key network elements to the event subsequent operational measures taken and experiences gained.

20210615 Practical Applications of Computer Modelling for AS4853 Voltage Safety Assessments

Metallic assets in parallel or proximity to HV power lines provide many challenges to assess voltage hazard risks either from low frequency induction (LFI) or voltage transfer through soil or both during normal load conditions and earth fault conditions. Whilst complex equations and mathematics can be applied computer modelling using commercially available software provides many options for practical assessments. This webinar will explore the three ‘levels’ of assessment required by AS 4853 a simplified approach towards computer modelling using CDEGS HIFREQ examination of results and an overview of frequency of contact considerations aimed at delivering cost effective practical solutions without unnecessary complexities.

Actuarial Techniques Applied to Asset Management - Brenton Deed

This presentation describes how actuarial techniques developed to value risk in the insurance industry may be applied to the asset management problems that arise in the power industry. The cost benefits of maintenance may be precisely determined as well as the cost of accelerated aging of plant caused by abnormal loads or by deferring upgrades. Also presented is a technique for evaluating network designs to provide optimal risk profiles. This allows engineers to put a precise dollar value to problems that have been decided on using "prudent practice".

Insulation Co-ordination for Transmission & Distribution Equipment

EESA is pleased to present Colin Lee, a long-time electricity industry professional, who will present on the topic of Insulation Coordination.

Insulation coordination encompasses the studies and steps used to select the insulation strength of electrical equipment so that it can survive the operating and transient overvoltages (from lightning and switching) which it is subjected to over its life. A good knowledge of insulation coordination will generally lead to the optimal amount of insulation, but to adequately address lightning strikes some form of overvoltage protection is still required, such as the installation of shielded earthwires or surge arresters.

Colin will go through the insulation coordination principles outlined in the various standards and how to apply it using worked examples to select the insulation requirements for transmission and distribution equipment.

Load Control of Plug-in Electric Vehicles for Enhanced Power System Responsiveness

Responsive load control offers a particularly effective approach to compensating for the variability inherent in large-scale renewable generation, and mitigating the effects of generation and transmission outages. Furthermore, as plug-in electric vehicles grow in popularity, scheduling their charging load will become vitally important to prevent local overloads, and to ensure optimal use of generation resources. Fortunately expansive communications networks and advances in distributed control algorithms facilitate precise, non-disruptive forms of load control.

Under the Australian Constitution it is the State and Territory governments, not the Commonwealth which has responsibility for energy. Victoria is one of three states (the others being New South Wales and Queensland) which have laws prohibiting nuclear power, while the other states and territories have no prohibitions. With South Australia considering the nuclear fuel cycle, and there being a possible future energy supply via the National Electricity Market (NEM), this has direct relevance to Victoria.

SA Power Networks – Operational Experience from a 100% Solar Network

On 11 October 2020, South Australia became the first major power system in the world to operate on 100% solar energy. The majority of this energy was generated on rooftops and shared through the State’s distribution network. Learn how SA Power Networks is responding to the challenges and opportunities presented by the world’s highest penetration of distributed solar PV.  Innovative solutions are under development to manage the power network in a manner that was not previously envisaged.

Solar Enablement Initiative, State Estimation on the Distribution Network

 

Solar Enablement Initiative: Applying State Estimation to Distribution Networks to Facilitate a High DER Future

The Solar Enablement Initiative (SEI) is a collaborative project which has refined and applied a novel State Estimation Algorithm (SEA) across eight feeders within three Australian distribution networks to achieve a level of visibility over network performance previously unimaginable without significant capital investment. Once the state of the network is known a distribution operator can define a safe network operating envelope within which active DER can be dynamically managed, an important step to facilitate increasing levels of distributed energy resources (DER) on the network and to unlock the value of the network and DER for customers.

This presentation will demonstrate how the SEA developed in a research setting has been successfully translated into a real world industry setting as part of a small scale trial.

This presentation will cover:

  • Novel UQ-developed state estimation algorithm
  • Results of the estimator as applied to the project‚Äôs trial feeders
  • Dynamic Operating Envelopes for DER
  • Cleveland Case Study ‚Äì dynamic export from a PV system based on near real-time network conditions
  • Future work in this space

The Energy Security Board Post 2025 Market Design

The power industry is going through a period of challenging and rapid change.  Consistent with the National Electricity Objective of delivering more affordable energy and satisfied consumers and with the objectives set out in the Finkel Review, a new electricity market design better suited to the needs of the future has become an imperative.

Deputy Chair of the ESB, David Swift, describes how the task of designing the “Post 2025 Market Design” is proceeding, summarising the collaboration with national energy market bodies and the consultation paper outlining the challenges.  David describes the work completed to date and indicates the ESB’s thinking on aspects of the future design.  The project aims to recommend a coherent fit-for-purpose market design for the future by mid-2021
