Distributed energy resourcesProject Project MATCH
Project MATCH (Monitoring and Analysis Toolbox for Compliance in a High DER future) aims to establish tools to understand how DER performs in the field during power system disturbances. This report presents the findings from the first year of the Project and includes the development of analytical tools, automated data collection triggers and findings on compliance.
This technical report presents the activities and findings achieved through Project MATCH (Monitoring and Analysis Toolbox for Compliance in a High DER future), during the period January 2021 to August 2022. The project outputs are categorised by three key workstreams:
Disturbance alerts and automated high-resolution (5s) data collection. Development of alert triggers, Solar Analytics software development and automated system testing and validation.
Inverter compliance assessment. Extension of current analysis tools to leverage new data streams from workstream 1 and incorporate a wider array of data sources.
DER data analysis to support AEMO DER modelling. Development of new statistical analysis capabilities to reflect diverse infield behaviours. Outputs will inform AEMO’s DER modelling in PSSE and PSCAD.
