Solar Analtyics is leading a project funded by ARENA to provide data about how solar systems respond to voltage disturbances on the grid, with the aim to improve the Australian Energy Market Operator’s modelling, and therefore increase the amount of PV rooftop solar that Australia’s power system can handle.

AEMO's recent report into the major disturbance on the National Energy Market in August 2018 used Solar Analytics data to understand the response of rooftop PV. The analysis of Solar Analytics data showed that rooftop solar assisted in resolving the issue by reducing generation as required in at least two states, and has provided learnings for the industry for future incidents. Our Head of Algorithms, Dr Jonathon Dore, breaks down what happened in a short and easy-to-understand blog post.

As reported by the AFR, AEMO released a report on Thursday investigating the rare 'islanding' of QLD and NSW's electricity supply on the 25th August 2018 when lightening struck a transmission tower supporting the QLD-NSW electricity interconnector lines. AEMO used Solar Analytics data in collaboration with the UNSW to understand the role of rooftop PV solar in the event.
