DER behaviour during disturbances

AEMO has been collecting and analysing data from a wide range of sources to understand DER behaviour in response to power system disturbances.  Key findings can be found in:

This information has improved AEMO’s ability to anticipate the behaviour of DER in various circumstances.  It also contributes crucial input data to inform AEMO’s development of power system models that represent DER behaviour during disturbances, and has informed review of DER performance standards.


This work is being conducted in collaboration with the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA), Solar Analytics, Wattwatchers, the University of New South Wales, ElectraNet, TasNetworks and Energy Queensland. Key projects include:

These collaborations have provided key inputs to AEMO’s power system model development, and informed changes to DER performance standards.
