Reactive Plant Operators ARE TO ACT UPON THE ELECTRONIC INSTRUCTIONS until further notice from AEMO

AEMO announces that the Operational Go-live of the NEM VAr Dispatch Schedule (VDS) System is scheduled at 10.00 am market time on 31 August 2016. AEMO will issue a market notice earlier that morning to confirm the transition to Go-live will proceed. There is no operational difference in reactive power dispatch before and after Go-live. Operational Go-live is a symbolic event and is a demonstration of AEMO’s commitment to the use of the VDS System as an operational tool.


Is AEMO currently requesting Reactive Plant Operators to act on electronic instructions?
