Network planning

Distribution annual planning report

The 2017 Distribution Annual Planning Report has been prepared by Jemena as the Distribution Network Service Provider (DNSP) for the north-west area of greater metropolitan Melbourne, in accordance with the requirements set out in clause 5.13 of the National Electricity Rules.

The Network Limitations Map (Google Earth KMZ file) has been developed to support the Distribution Annual Planning Report. It provides a geographical visualisation of Jemena’s emerging network constraints and summarises planned network augmentation activities.

Distribution system limitation report

The 2017 Distribution System Limitation Report has been developed in accordance with the requirements of clause 5.13.3 of the National Electricity Rules.  Supporting documentation for this report includes:
• Historic load traces – sub-transmission loops
• Historic load traces – zone substations
• Historic load traces – feeders

Transmission connection planning report

Clause 3.4 of the Victorian Electricity Code requires all five Victorian electricity distribution businesses to submit to the Essential Services Commission a joint annual report called the Transmission Connection Planning Report 2017 detailing how together all distributors plan to meet predicted demand for electricity supplied into their distribution networks from transmission connections over the following ten calendar years.

The demand forecasts used in the preparation of the Transmission Connection Planning Report are referred to as the Victorian Terminal Station Demand Forecasts (TSDF). The TSDF sets out Victorian transmission connection point demand forecasts as provided by Victorian participants, being the Victorian electricity distribution businesses and directly connected customers.

Regulatory Investment Tests for Distribution (RIT-Ds)

As required under Clause 5.17 of the National Electricity Rules, for projects subject to the Regulatory Investment Test for Distribution (RIT-D), Jemena undertakes RIT-Ds to identify the credible option that maximises the present value of the net economic benefit to all those who produce, consume and transport electricity in the National Electricity Market.
