The Australian Energy Review - - NEWS -

THE Aus­tralian En­ergy Mar­ket Com­mis­sion (AEMC) has re­leased its fi­nal pack­age of rules to avoid fu­ture black­outs across the coun­try.

AEMC chair­man John Pierce said as the power sys­tem con­tin­ues to evolve, the rule changes will de­liver the nec­es­sary in­er­tia into the sys­tem for fre­quency con­trol.

“They will also re­quire net­works to pro­vide a min­i­mum level of sys­tem strength to help keep the sys­tem sta­ble,” Mr Pierce said.
