New rules to stabilise power system
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.
