AEMO is consulting on the System Strength Requirements Methodology, System Strength Impact Assessment Guidelines and the Power System Stability Guidelines in accordance with clauses 5.20.6, 4.6.6, 4.3.4 and the Rules consultation procedures in rule 8.9 of the National Electricity Rules (NER).  


AEMO sees system strength as the ability of the power system to maintain and control the voltage waveform at any given location in the power system, both during steady state operation and following a disturbance.

In October 2021, the AEMC released its final determination on the efficient management of system strength on the power system. This has introduced new rule requirements for the System Strength Requirements Methodology and Impact Assessment Guidelines, as well as consequential changes to the Power System Stability Guidelines. AEMO has begun consultation on the proposed changes to these documents.

AEMO will be hosting a webinar on 17 May 2022 at 10am AEST. Please register your interest here by 10 May 2022.
