Directions to SA Generators – 12 November 2022 to 19 November 2022

Between 12 November 2022 and 19 November 2022, AEMO issued a series of system security and frequency control ancillary services (FCAS) directions across several events to Market Participants in South Australia to maintain the power system in a secure operating state. 

The need for directions arose due to the synchronous separation of a major part of the South Australian power system from the rest of the National Electricity Market (NEM). 

Where the Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) intervenes in the NEM through the use of directions, AEMO must publish a report in accordance with National Electricity Rules (NER) clauses 4.8.9(f) and 3.13.6A.

The NEM Event report below satisfies those NER obligations and is based on information available to AEMO at the time of publication:

In accordance with NER Clause 3.15.7B (c)(1), AEMO is required to appoint an Independent Expert to assess and determine the additional compensation claims for the Directed participant that exceeds the $20,000 threshold and exceeds the $100,000 aggregate threshold. 

Further information on the appointment and reports completed by the Independent Expert(s) relating to the reporting period of 12 November 2022 to 19 November 2022 is accessible from the following page(s):
