overview

Key Learning Objectives – Improved Understanding Of:

  • The complex engineering systems that underpin electricity industry operation
  • How ancillary services fit into overall electricity industry design and operation
  • Current practice in the provision of ancillary services including implementation of ancillary services in Europe, North America and the National Electricity Market (NEM)
  • Strengths and weaknesses of current ancillary service arrangements in the context of increasing penetration of converter-interfaced devices, including wind and PV generation and many kinds of reversible storage and end-use equipment
  • Future trends including potential enhancements to the provision of ancillary service in the NEM

About the Course

This course provides experienced staff in the electricity industry, its equipment suppliers and governance bodies with an understanding of the concepts and challenges associated with ancillary service design and provision and how ancillary services fit into the overall task of electricity design, including future trends.

The course begins with a short review of electricity industry structure and operation, including a summary of implementation in the NEM, trends in electricity industry technology and a discussion of the implications of the increasing deployment of converter-interfaced devices.

The course then moves onto an overview of the theory behind design and operation of a competitive electricity industry (engineering, economics and governance) and the compromises involved in practical implementation, including how ancillary services fit into overall electricity industry design and operation.

This is followed by a summary of current international practice in the provision of ancillary services, placing implementation of ancillary services in the NEM in that context. This provides a basis for discussing strengths and weaknesses of current ancillary service arrangements in the light of increasing penetration of converter-interfaced devices, including wind and PV generation, reversible storage and flexible demand.

The final session of the course will discuss recent developments in ancillary service design and implementation as well as future trends, with a particular focus on the National Electricity Market.

Who Will Benefit

The course is aimed at engineers and others who have had some exposure to engineering issues associated with the electricity industry. It will not assume high-level engineering knowledge but will provide an opportunity for high-level technical discussions if participants so wish.

    flexible end-use
  •  Understanding and managing the dynamic behaviour of an electricity industry with a high penetration of converter-interfaced devices

Design of competitive electricity industries, with particular attention to ancillary services

  •  Design of a competitive electricity industry using conventional technologies
  •  Design of a competitive electricity industry with a high penetration of distributed resources – small scale generation, reversible storage and flexible end-use
  •  Design of a competitive electricity industry with a high penetration of converter-interfaced devices

Current practice in the provision of ancillary services

  •  Overview of the design and provision of ancillary services in Europe, North America and the Australian NEM
  •  Strengths and weakness in the design and provision of ancillary services

Emerging issues and future directions in the design and provision of ancillary services

  •  Emerging issues and future trends in the provision of ancillary services in Europe, North America and the Australian NEM
  •  Implications for the Australian NEM
