Transformations in the Australian electricity network prompted the Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) to revise pre-connection study requirements of new generators connecting to the network increasing the complexity of the process. The continued uptake of large asynchronous generation introduces a number of challenges related to the control and stability of the power system.

Implementation of the NER and AEMO’s system strength impact assessment and modelling guidelines has introduced significant challenges for networks, proponents and consultants related to the acquisition, analysis and use of generator and network modelling data and performing the required pre-connection studies.

This course will provide a detailed overview of the modelling and simulation requirements of large asynchronous generators connecting to weak networks, prompting the most onerous of connection processes.

The course will cover a number of topics related to the application of the NER and impact assessments including modelling techniques required for connecting generators and the network. Preliminary and Full Impact Assessments will be investigated with real-world indicative examples and simulation outcomes.

 Delegates will also learn the importance of detailed modelling techniques, the data that is required and how it is implemented in relation to connecting generators meeting their technical performance requirements.
