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.

Every day of this week, wind generation was operating at a lower Capacity Factor (CF) than the year round average, and because of that, the average for the week was also well below that year round average. A couple of days, it was well down on that average, and that dragged the average for this week even lower. Because of that, both long term averages changed very little, and as you can see they are both at around the same, with very little difference between them at all.
