We have added a new subsystem to NEOmobile called MIMS which stands for MITC Information Management System. While mostly of interest to TNSPs we are making it generally available for a limited time – feedback as always is welcome! For background under the AER’s MITC scheme, TNSPs are financially punished by between $4k and $15k (varies for each TNSP) for every constraint related to the outage that binds with an absolute marginal value greater than or equal to $10.
The MIMS system monitors and reports on network outages and associated Generic Constraint sets. You can find the MIMS events on Overview 1 of NEOmobile. The types of information you will find in the MIMS events include:
MIMS monitors a number of tables to generate its event messages. These include:
Outage 813871 will start in 8 hours (2018-11-28 08:00 - 2018-11-28 16:00) on equipment: 275KV_879 (LINE), substation = H13_ROSS, owner = Powerlink, region = QLD1; 275KV_879 (LINE), substation = H35_STHM, owner = Powerlink, region = QLD1. Related invocation: 158338 (2018-11-28 08:05 - 2018-11-28 16:00), on set Q-SMRS, affecting regions [QLD1]
Invocation (directly related to an outage)
Generic constraint set invocation 158338 starting in 8 hours (2018-11-28 08:05 - 2018-11-28 16:00), Set Q-SMRS, regions [QLD1]. Related outage: Outage 813871 (2018-11-28 08:00 - 2018-11-28 16:00), on equipment [275KV_879]
Invocation (indirectly related to an outage)
Generic constraint set invocation 157443 starting in 8 hours (2018-11-28 07:05 - 2018-11-29 17:00), Set S-WE_MWP4_RB, regions [SA1, VIC1]. Possible related outage: Outage 814562 (2018-11-28 11:00 - 2018-11-29 14:00), on equipment [4CAP_4B_66], affecting region [VIC1]
High Marginal Value
High constraint marginal value detected in predispatch. ID = F_T+FASH1_2C_RREG, 2018-11-27 16:00, MV = -21.77348, region: [TAS1], limit type = Unit Zero - FCAS, description: Out = Farrell to Sheffield No.1 or 2 line; John Butters, Tribute and Reece 1, 2 unavailable for raise FCAS. Invocation 158186 [F-T-FASH_1_2_C] 2018-11-27 08:05 - 2018-11-27 16:00
Note that not all outages are directly related to a generic constraint set invocation via the NETWORK_OUTAGECONSTRAINTSET table. In these cases an indirect association is attempted based on the following criteria:
Note that indirect matches between outages and invocations are suggestions only.
When you mouse over certain parts of the NEOmobile web page you might notice a blue/white (i) button popup. If you then float over that button you will see a popup context menu of available topics. This can be seen in the screen shot below for the region panel. Clicking on a menu item will take you to the relevant topic in our Help page.
We have had a Windfarm generation page for some time and now we have added the equivalent for solar.
Since QLD now has a new wind farm called Mount Emerald, IES have added a QLD tab into the dashboard. QLD has also been added to the NEM chart. The impact caused by this change is that the NEM predispatch data is now showing QLD’s total intermittent and semi-scheduled generation. We have renamed and added extra attribution to the NEM chart to make it clearer.
