Qualitrol IDM+ as an FCAS Conformance Monitoring System
The regulation of frequency in the National Electricity Market is managed through frequency control ancillary services (FCAS) – one of four ancillary services used by AEMO to manage the power system securely and safeguard supply quality.
FCAS providers (registered power generators) bid their services into the FCAS markets in a similar way to how generators bid into the energy market, and are financially rewarded for availability and for delivery of these services. Service providers must be able to show their conformance to the ancillary services specification.
Insulect have a conformance monitoring solution that is operating in numerous monitoring applications across the power system.
