This continuing Series of Posts will detail the daily data for wind generation from all the Industrial Wind Plants on the major Australian Grid. This Series continues the data collection for all Australian wind power which was started on 1 October 2018. The original Series was started to show a definitive and accurate Capacity Factor Percentage for all the Australian wind plants on the main Australian power grid, and this new Series will continue to add to both of those Long Term Capacity Factor averages, shown directly under the Table below.

For an Introduction to this Series, and an explanation for the table, and the background, go to the following Post at the highlighted link. This introductory Post also shows the permanent link to all Posts in this Series.

The total Nameplate for all these wind plants changes as each new wind plant comes on line delivering power to the grid. That current Nameplate is 9854MW, and this is from the current total of 76 wind plants.

Wind Nameplate change from beginning of data collection on Monday 1 October 2018 – (then) 5301MW – (now) 9854MW – (Change) +4553MW (an increase of 86%)

Current Wind Nameplate Capacity – 9854MW

Comments for this week.

Weekly Update

On Monday of this past week, wind generation was at one of its high points, and even then, there’s some irony, that it was still only operating at less than 60% of it’s total Nameplate. On Tuesday, it was also quite high. However, both of those highs were all but completely offset by the lows of two and three days later. Again, you can see that those ups and downs showed that the weekly average was only just a tick higher than the year round average. And when that weekly average was factored in, both long term averages hardly moved, with the yearly average again below the longer term average.
