Joint IEEE Power & Energy Society and Sustainable Energy Now Event
The WA South West Interconnected System (SWIS) is increasingly accommodating a higher ratio of non-synchronous generators due to rapid and unprecedented uptake of solar PV and other distributed energy resources. System security and in particular inertia: the by-product of rotary generators, begins to be adversely impacted in this transformation and appropriate compensation approaches are required. In order to determine the levels of inertia present in an electricity system terms of both generators and loads, The Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) took the decision to develop their own proprietary in-house modelling tools to identify where shortfalls in system security may lie and the needed system resources to offset system security risks in this area.
Julius Susanto will present an outline of the AEMO software and how it will benefit the SWIS and other networks facing similar issues.
Julius Susanto is a Power Systems Specialist and a Chartered Electrical Engineer with over 17 years of extensive practical and modelling experience and postgraduate qualifications in electrical (power) engineering and economics. His area of expertise extends to power system studies and analysis, utility-scale solar PV development and grid integration, hybrid microgrid design, software development for electrical engineering, techno-economic and regulatory analysis of electricity supply systems. Julius is currently completing his PhD in Stability of Microgrids and Weak Networks at Murdoch University.
