Large-scale solarProject AGL Solar Project
AGL’s Knowledge Sharing Report number 6 contains lessons learnt from commissioning and performance testing activities at both the Nyngan and Broken Hill plants.
The Operating Protocol is an agreement between the generator and the NSP that outlines the procedures to be followed for safe and efficient operation. It typically covers:
- Operational boundaries
- Operational responsibilities
- Notification processes
- Communication processes
- Switching for planned works
- Switching for emergency conditions
- Special conditions
Both Nyngan and Broken Hill had special operational conditions (unrelated to solar) that needed to be understood by both parties.
