AEMO Releases PLEXOS NEM Dataset

The Australian Energy Market Operator (“AEMO”) operates the wholesale interconnected electricity market in the eastern states, known as the National Electricity Market, or NEM.

AEMO National Transmission Network Development Plan

AEMO’s functions for the NEM include Power System and Market Operator and National Transmission Planner among other responsibilities. As part of the transmission planning, the AEMO first released the National Transmission Network Development Plan (NTNDP) in 2010 and have updated the plan in 2011.

PLEXOS NTNDP Data set

For the NTNDP 2012, AEMO has recently released a copy of 2012 NTNDP Database in PLEXOS and was used to solve the Least-Cost Expansion Modelling requirements of their analysis.

AEMO states that PLEXOS “principal feature is that it solves quickly and enables a large number of scenarios and sensitivity studies to be explored in a short amount of time.”

PLEXOS Features

In addition to the Least-Cost Expansion Modelling, PLEXOS is ideally suited to perform the following related power system analyses in the NEM:

  • Price Forecasting
  • Power Market Simulation and Analysis
  • Trading and Strategic Decision Support
  • Generation and Transmission Capacity Expansion Planning (Investment Analysis)
  • Renewable Integration Analysis
  • Co-optimisation of Ancillary Services and Energy Dispatch
  • Transmission Analysis and Congestion Management
  • Portfolio Optimisation and Valuation
  • Risk Management and Stochastic Optimisation

Energy Exemplar’s Australian National Electricity Market dataset

We are also able to assist new customers with migrating their existing power system database into PLEXOS. Alternatively, Energy Exemplar has created an Australian National Electricity Market dataset incorporating all of the planning and analysis capabilities offered by PLEXOS. In addition to long term planning, Energy Exemplar’s Australian National Electricity Market dataset incorporates PLEXOS short to medium term planning and analysis, forecasting and other functions as required by market participants.

Energy Exemplar’s NTNDP Tool Package

Network constraint equations are part of AEMO released NTNDP input data based on pre-dispatch constraints and network snapshots. They are complex and hard to be manually setup in simulation models. Energy Exemplar has developed a custom tool package to automatically load and enforce those constraints in NTNDP simulations. This package is developed based on OpenPLEXOS functions and can be attached to any models in PLEXOS format. This package contains:

  • NTNDP OpenPLEXOS assembly;
  • Setup GUI for NTNDP simulations;
  • NTNDP constraint workbooks in EE format; (The text file based manual constraints are converted to PLEXOS readable format.)
  • NTNDP OpenPLEXOS help file.
