(e) any six-hour periods where a shortfall of capacity is forecast, including a shortfall of Ancillary Services or an inability to satisfy the Ready Reserve Standard;
(f) transmission outages of which System Management is aware, forecast transmission capacity between potentially constrained regions, and any constraints that are likely;
(g) possible security problems that could affect market or dispatch outcomes;

Step 4.1.4 of the Power System Operation Procedure (PSOP) for ST PASA requires AEMO to publish methodologies covering various aspects of ST PASA. AEMO is required to engage with Market Participants and Network Operators in relation to the implementation of those methodologies prior to publication. The methodologies are available here:
Links to the ST PASA reports and charts are below, ordered by report date.
A charting template in the form of an Excel spreadsheet has been provided by System Management to help Participants interpret the data. To use the template, please copy the data from the appropriate CSV file into the spreadsheet.
