Australian Weekly Wind Power Generation Data – 27 March 2023 To 2 April 2023
March 28, 2023 - PA Pundits
By Anton Lang ~
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 10277MW, and this is from the current total of 79 wind plants.
Wind Nameplate change from beginning of data collection on Monday 1 October 2018 – (then) 5301MW – (now) 10277MW – (Change) +4976MW (an increase of 94%)
Current Wind Nameplate Capacity – 10277MW
Long Term Capacity Factor – 52 weeks – (Last Week – 29.99%)
Long Term Capacity Factor – 235 weeks – (Last Week – 30.17%)
Comments for this week.
Anton Lang uses the screen name of TonyfromOz, and he writes at this site, PA Pundits International on topics related to electrical power generation, from all sources, concentrating mainly on Renewable Power, and how the two most favoured methods of renewable power generation, Wind Power and all versions of Solar Power, fail comprehensively to deliver levels of power required to replace traditional power generation.
