Charleville (PDF, 1.4 MB)Non-Network Options ReportThe Static VAR Compensator (SVC) at Charleville zone substation is approaching the end of its design life and it is recommended for replacement on the basis of its age and reliability. The SVC performs the function of maintaining stable voltages at both high and low load times. The SVC also provides some Negative Phase Sequence (NPS) correction to address voltage balance issues associated with SWER networks. The SVC is critical to the provision of ongoing voltage/VAR support, and to meet Ergon Energy’s corporate strategic objectives. Without reactive compensation, 66kV supply at Charleville and the far south western Queensland suffers from poor voltage regulation. This report is an invitation to registered participants and interested parties to make submissions on credible options to address this identified need.12 Jan 201816 Apr 2018
Charlton Area (PDF, 1.2 MB)Final Project Assessment ReportErgon Energy is responsible for electricity supply to the Charlton, Wellcamp, Kingsthorpe and Westbrook areas, west of Toowoomba. We have identified emerging limitations in the electricity distribution network supplying the area, as the load on the Torrington 110/33/11kV substation has been steadily increasing due to increasing numbers of residential, commercial and industrial customers. The region is poised for further significant growth. Should additional works not be completed in this region, it is likely that significant voltage and capacity constraints could present when additional customers begin to connect. We have determined that there will not be a non-network option that is a potential credible option, or that forms a significant part of a potential credible option. As per the “Screening for non-network options report”, we determined that the most appropriate technical and economic network solution to the network constraint was the establishment of a 33/11kV, 10MVA Skid Substation on the corner of Meehan and Wirth Roads, Charlton.30 Sep 201530 Oct 2015
Gracemere Area (PDF, 1.7 MB)Final ReportErgon Energy has identified increasing risks to reliable supply in the electricity distribution network supplying the Gracemere area. A Regulatory Test was completed (though the requirement for consultation changed during the process). The loads on Ergon Energy’s Malchi 66/11kV Zone Substation and subsequent 11kV network have progressively increased such that the Regulatory Test is satisfied via the Market Benefits limb for construction of a compact substation at the Gracemere site (a New Small New Network Asset), with completion by November 2018.05 May 2016
Emerald (PDF, 197.1 KB)The Expressions of Interest for Emerald Reactive Support closed on 21 March 2017. We have received four expressions of interest which potentially meet the reactive support needs for Emerald Zone Substation. Following due diligence, we will seek formal approvals through normal governance and provide further direction for the for proponents.21 Apr 2017
