About the Webinar: AEMO undertakes the general power system risk review (GPSRR) annually for the National Electricity Market (NEM) in consultation with network service providers (NSPs), in accordance with the National Electricity Rules (NER). The purpose of the GPSRR is to review a prioritized set of power system risks, comprising events or conditions that, alone or in combination, would likely lead to cascading outages or major supply disruptions. For each priority risk, the GPSRR assesses the adequacy of current risk management arrangements and (where appropriate) options for future management.

This webinar provides an overview of the scope of the GPSRR including AEMO’s approach to:

  • Identifying priority risks based on actual power system incidents as well as extensive internal and external consultation.
  • Conducting detailed power system analysis of non-credible contingency events using RMS and EMT simulation tools.
  • Evaluating solution options to mitigate risks and improve power system resilience.
