Executive Summary
ElectraNet is required to meet the supply reliability standards and quality of supply standards
specified in the South Australian Electricity Transmission Code (ETC) and National Electricity
Rules (NER) respectively.
ElectraNet has identified emerging limitations within the transmission system that supplies
the Templers, Dorrien and Roseworthy connection points, referred to as the Barossa area of
the Mid-North region of South Australia within this Application Notice. As a consequence of
ongoing load growth within the Barossa area, ElectraNet will be unable to satisfy the NER
requirement to maintain adequate voltages under peak load contingency conditions at the
Templers, Dorrien and Roseworthy connection points without interrupting load after the
summer of 2009/10.
In addition, the 1 J uly 2008 Electricity Transmission Code upgraded the reliability standard
that applies to the Templers and Dorrien connection points. The upgraded standard requires
continuous N-1 transmission line and transformer capacity into the Templers and Dorrien
connection points by no later than 30 J une 2011. Therefore, interruption of supply at either of
these connection points as a result of a single contingency will no longer be acceptable.
In order to resolve these limitations, ElectraNet has developed a number of potential
solutions and applied the Regulatory Test for reliability augmentations to determine the least
cost net present value solution. From this assessment, the recommendation of this
Application Notice that a new 275/132 kV substation, to be known as Templers West, be
established adjacent to ElectraNets existing Templers 132/33 kV substation at an estimated
cost of $36.6m. This substation would feed directly into the existing Dorrien 132/33 kV
substation by modifying the existing Roseworthy Dorrien 132 kV transmission line.

1. Introduction
ElectraNet has identified emerging limitations at the Templers and Dorrien
connection points in the Mid-North region of South Australia, including the inability
to satisfy the National Electricity Rules (NER) requirement to maintain adequate
voltages under peak load contingency conditions at the Templers, Dorrien and
Roseworthy connection points after the summer of 2009/10 without interrupting
load.
In addition, the supply reliability standard for the Templers and Dorrien connection
points was upgraded in the 1 J uly 2008 Electricity Transmission Code (ETC).
In upgrading the standard, ESCOSA changed the load category of the Templers
and Dorrien connection points from Category 3 to Category 4. The result of this
change is a requirement to provide continuous N-1 equivalent transmission line and
transformer capacity into Templers and Dorrien for at least 100% of the agreed
maximum demand of each connection point by no later than 30 J une 2011.
Therefore, interruption of supply as a result of a single contingency event is no
longer acceptable. Consequently, low voltage conditions caused by single
transmission line outages can not be managed under the current system
configuration. To resolve these limitations, ElectraNet is proposing to establish a
new large network asset to meet the reliability standards and maintain security of
supply within the area.
The proposed new large network asset is estimated to cost in excess of $20m.
Therefore, this Application Notice is issued in accordance with clause 5.6.6 of the
NER, which requires the following information to be provided:
the reasons the augmentation is required, including, if relevant, why it is
considered a reliability augmentation, as defined in the NER;
feasible options available to address the future supply requirements,
including non-network alternatives;
the recommended solution, including the timetable for implementation; and
why the solution satisfies the Regulatory Test prescribed by the AER.
This document addresses these NER requirements.

2. Background: Electricity Supply System
2.1 Geographic Area
The Mid-North region of South Australia is located north of the city of Adelaide,
extending east to Robertstown, north to Port Augusta, and includes York Peninsula
to the west. This geographic region is shown in Figure 1. The limitations addressed
by this Application Notice affect the Templers, Dorrien and Roseworthy connection
points within the southern portion of this region between the Para and Waterloo
substations, referred to in this report as the Barossa area.
2.2 Existing Supply Arrangements
Loads within the Mid-North region are supplied via a 132 kV transmission network.
275/132 kV substations at Bungama, Brinkworth, Robertstown and Para inject into
this network from the main 275 kV transmission system.
Supply to the Templers, Dorrien and Roseworthy connection points is provided via
the Para-Roseworthy and the Templers-Waterloo 132 kV transmission lines. Of
these two transmission paths, the Para-Roseworthy 132 kV line is the stronger
supply due to the 275/132 kV injection at Para Substation. These arrangements are
shown in Figure 2.
2.3 Committed Network Developments
ElectraNet is not aware of any committed transmission or sub-transmission network
developments planned for the Mid-North region of South Australia that will impact
on the emerging limitations in the supply to the Templers, Dorrien and Roseworthy
connection points.
2.4 Existing and Committed Generation Facilities
A number of generation facilities, including wind farms, are connected to the Mid-
North 132 kV transmission system, including Mintaro Power Station, Wattle Point
Wind Farm and Snowtown Wind Farm. In addition to these generation facilities,
Hallet Power Station and Brown Hill Wind Farm are connected to the 275 kV
network at Canowie, and Angaston Power Station is connected to the ETSA Utilities
distribution system at Angaston. Angaston substation is connected to Dorrien
substation via two 33 kV lines. Furthermore, approximately 1.5 MW of embedded
generation is connected to the transmission system via Roseworthy substation.

There are currently numerous wind farms under consideration in the Mid-North
region. Hallet Hill Wind Farm and Clements Gap Wind Farm are expected to be
connected to the transmission system within this region in the near future. There
are, however, no other committed sources of thermal generation within the region of
which ElectraNet is currently aware.

3. Background: Electricity Demand
3.1 Overview
The demand forecasts that underpin the recommendations of this Application
Notice are consistent with the ten-year demand and energy forecasts published in
ElectraNets Annual Planning Review 2009 and the ESIPCs Annual Planning
Report for 2009.
Electricity demand forecasts over a ten-year period are obtained from ETSA Utilities
and directly connected customers at each connection point on ElectraNets
transmission system. Those forecasts take account of demand-side management
programmes in-place and foreseen by ETSA Utilities, and embedded generation
within ETSA Utilities network which may have the effect of reducing the forecast
demand to be supplied via each transmission connection point.
3.2 Load Forecast
The growth in electrical load in a region is dependent on many variables, including
economic growth, housing and commercial development, industrial growth, spot-
load increases that occur in response to local development, and environmental
conditions (predominantly weather conditions). The forecasting of electrical load is
based on econometric analysis coupled with knowledge of localised developments,
historical information and trends. The load forecast provided in this section is based
on a 10% probability of exceedance and medium economic growth.
The electrical load in the Mid-North region comprises a diverse mixture of
residential, industrial, agricultural, grazing, aquaculture and viticulture loads.
Commercial loads contribute a significant portion of the total load at the major
centres of Port Pirie, Kadina, Port Wakefield, Clare and in the Barossa Valley. The
supply limitations addressed by this Application Notice are entirely located within
the Barossa Valley area which is supplied from the Templers and Dorrien
connection points
Demand forecasts issued by ETSA Utilities for the Mid-North supply area indicate
an overall load growth of approximately 2.7% per annum for the foreseeable future,
as indicated in Table 1. Load growth at the Templers and Dorrien connection points
is projected to be about 3.0% at each connection point for the foreseeable future.
The Templers and Dorrien load forecasts are also shown in Table 1.

TEMPLERS SUPPLY AUGMENTATION
October 2009


ElectraNet Pty Ltd
Page 9 of 67
A significant step change in the load at Templers connection point is evident
between 2007/08 and 2008/09, as shown in Table 1. During this time, the peak load
at Templers increased by 16% in a single year. Furthermore, the forecast rate of
load growth for the Templers connection point has also increased. In 2007/08, the
forecast load growth at the Templers connection point was 2.5%. As discussed
above, this rate of load growth has increased to 3% under the 2009 medium
economic growth load forecast.
Dorrien has experienced a slight decrease in the rate of load growth since 2007/08,
with load growth at this connection point easing to 1.9% between 2007/08 and
2008/09 from a forecast 3.2%. The ongoing load growth at Dorrien connection point
is forecast at 3.0% under the 2009 medium economic load growth forecast, as
previously discussed.
A step change in load has also occurred at the Roseworthy connection point.
Despite the easing of load growth at Dorrien, the increased load growth at Templers
and Roseworthy has brought forward the emerging limitations within the
transmission supply to the Barossa area compared to projections based on the
2008 load forecast.

Page 11 of 67
3.3 Pattern of Use
The peak electricity demand in the Mid-North supply area occurs during the
summer months of the year, with only a small amount of diversity existing between
different areas within the region. This lack of diversity means that the transmission
system must be capable of supplying the total peak demand in the Mid-North region
simultaneously.
Figure 3 shows the annual load duration curve for the combined Templers, Dorrien
and Roseworthy connection points, and Figure 4 provides the recorded daily load
curves for both the summer peak load day during 2008/09 and the winter peak load
day during 2008 for the Dorrien and Templers connection points.

Dorrien Summer Peak (29/01/2009) Templers Summer Peak (29/01/2009)
Dorrien Winter Peak (29/7/2008) Templers Winter Peak (29/7/2008)

Figure 4: Typical daily load profiles for Templers and Dorrien connection points during
summer 2008/09 and winter 2008

The load duration curve for the combined Templers, Dorrien and Roseworthy
connection points indicates that high loads occur for relatively short periods of time
and that the load only exceeds 70% of the peak value for about 3% of the year. The
average load for the combined Templers, Dorrien and Roseworthy connection
points is approximately 50% of the peak load, which is typical of a load with a high
commercial contribution.
The daily summer load curve for the Dorrien connection point exhibits a peak
between the hours of 11:00 am and 6:00 pm, which is indicative of a high proportion
of commercial load during the summer months. The daily summer load curve for the
Templers connection point exhibits a similar pattern, with the peak occurring slightly
later in the day. This demonstrates a higher residential bias in the Templers load,
although the commercial component is still a major constituent.
The winter daily load curves display relatively steady loads during business hours,
with a significant peak towards the end of the business day. This is symptomatic of
commercial and residential heating loads on a cold winter day, which would
commence at the start of the business day (around 8:00 am) and continue to close-
of-business at around 5:30 pm. At that stage, domestic electric heating and cooking
would become prominent. There is a further peak that is seen on both the summer
and winter daily load curves that covers the hours of 11:00 pm to 1:00 am. This is
indicative of a high usage of electrical energy to heat water during that J tariff, or
off peak period.

4. ElectraNets Service Obligations
ElectraNet is required to meet the supply reliability standards and quality of supply
standards specified in the South Australian Electricity Transmission Code (ETC)
and National Electricity Rules (NER) respectively.
4.1 National Electricity Rules
As discussed previously in this Application Notice, the J uly 2008 ETC requires
continuous N-1 equivalent transmission line transformer capacity at the Templers
and Dorrien connection points for at least 100% of agreed maximum demand. That
requirement aligns with the intent of Schedule 5.1.2.1 of the NER, Credible
contingency events, that states, in part, that ElectraNet, as a Network Service
Provider, must plan, design, maintain, and operate its transmission network to allow
the transfer of power from generating units to customers with all facilities or
equipment associated with the power system in service, and may be required by a
Registered Participant under a connection agreement to continue to allow the
transfer of power with certain facilities or plant associated with the power system
out of service; that is, under N-1 conditions.
The NER also requires in Schedule 5.1.4, that at all times the supply voltage
remains between 90 percent and 110 percent of the normal voltage determined in
accordance with clause S5.1a.4 except as a consequence of a contingency event.
During a contingency, it is accepted that transmission system voltages may be
several percent lower than those obtained under normal operating conditions. For
planning purposes, a target value of 90% of nominal voltage is typically applied.
Voltages below this limit would prevent nominal voltages from being restored at the
customer level after transformer tap changing.
4.2 South Australian Electricity Transmission Code
The following relevant service standards are contained in the ETC.
Clause 2.1 Quality of supply and system reliability
2.1.1 Quality of supply
A transmission entity shall use its best endeavours to plan, develop and
operate the transmission network to meet the standards imposed by the
National Electricity Rules in relation to the quality of transmission services
such that there will be no requirements to shed load to achieve these
standards under normal and reasonably foreseeable operating conditions.
2.1.2 System reliability
A transmission entity shall use its best endeavours to plan, develop and
operate the transmission system so as to meet the standards imposed by
the National Electricity Rules in relation to transmission network reliability
such that there will be minimal requirements to shed load under normal
and reasonably foreseeable operating conditions.
TEMPLERS SUPPLY AUGMENTATION
October 2009


ElectraNet Pty Ltd
Page 14 of 67
The ETC also assigns reliability standards for each connection (exit) point or group
of connection points within the transmission network and thereby imposes specific
requirements on ElectraNet for planning and developing its transmission network.
The ETC includes additional obligations with regard to response times, spares
holdings, and reporting requirements. The following provides a summary of
ElectraNets service obligations for the Templers and Dorrien connection points
based on the ETC requirements (refer Clause 2.8 of the J uly 2008 ETC).
Before 1 July 2008, ElectraNet was required to
not contract for an amount of agreed maximum demand greater than 100% of
installed transmission line or transformer capacity;
provide N-1 equivalent transmission line capacity and N-1 equivalent
transformer capacity for at least 100% of agreed maximum demand by
whatever means including distribution capability, generation, load
interruptability or any combination thereof. This implies a non-continuous
supply is acceptable to meet this requirement.
in the event of a transmission line or transformer failure, use best endeavours
to restore contracted line or transformer capacity within two days of an
interruption in the case of a line failure, or four days in the case of a
transformer failure.
After 1 July 2008, ElectraNet must
not contract for an amount of agreed maximum demand greater than 100% of
installed transmission line capacity or installed transformer capacity;
provide N-1 equivalent transmission line and transformer capacity at the
Templers and Dorrien connection points for at least 100% of agreed
maximum demand;
use best endeavours to restore transmission line capacity within 12 hours of
an interruption; and
in the event of a transformer failure, use best endeavours to repair the
installed transformer or install a replacement transformer as soon as possible
so as to minimise the likelihood of an interruption as a result of the failure of
any other transformer also supplying that same connection point.
In addition, after 1 July 2008, ElectraNet must
in the event that agreed maximum demand at the Templers or Dorrien
connection point exceeds the equivalent line capacity or equivalent
transformer capacity standards specified above, use its best endeavours to
ensure that the line capacity or transformer capacity into the Mid-North region
meets the required standards in 12 months, and in any case, within 3 years.
The 1 J uly 2008 revised ETC defines N-1 as the ability of the transmission system
to continue to supply the contracted amount of agreed maximum demand
connected to the transmission system without interruption should any one element
fail (typically an outage of a transmission line or transformer). N-1 capacity may be

5. Projected Network Limitations
ElectraNet has undertaken analysis of the electricity transmission system that
supplies the Templers, Dorrien and Roseworthy connection points and identified a
number of emerging network limitations. There are two principal issues that need to
be addressed for these connection points: the 132 kV supply voltage in the area
under the loss of the Para Roseworthy 132 kV transmission line at times of peak
load, and the thermal rating of the Templers Waterloo and Para Roseworthy
132 kV transmission lines and the Para 275/132 kV transformer under peak load N-
1 conditions.
5.1 Voltage limitations at Templers and Dorrien
Beyond 2009/10, at times of peak load in the Mid-North region of South Australia,
an outage of the 132 kV transmission line from Para substation to Roseworthy
substation will result in 132 kV voltages below 90% of nominal at Roseworthy
substation. Without augmentation to the transmission system, 132 kV voltages at
Dorrien and Templers substations will also fall below 90% of nominal under outage
conditions in subsequent years. ElectraNet has under-voltage load-shedding
systems in place to ensure system security under these conditions. However, the
ETC stipulates that ElectraNet must use best endeavours to ensure that the
transmission system maintains voltages within the requirements of the NER under
credible contingency conditions without the need for load shedding. Therefore, a
reliability augmentation is required to address this emerging limitation.
Voltage excursions under a credible contingency must be in accordance with
S5.1a.4 and S5.1.4 of the NER. As discussed earlier, the NER requires that the
supply voltage remain between 90% and 110% of the nominal voltage under normal
operating conditions.

5.2 Thermal rating of the 132 kV transmission system
In addition to voltage support issues, the 132 kV network in the Mid-North region
that supplies the Templers, Dorrien and Roseworthy connection points is subject to
thermal capacity constraints. This adds to the need for the proposed reliability
augmentation.
Under contingent conditions, the Templers, Dorrien and Roseworthy connection
points may be supplied radially from either Para or Waterloo substation. During
such outage conditions, the total load that can be supplied by the transmission
system is limited to 141 MVA by the thermal rating of either the Templers
Waterloo or the Para Roseworthy 132 kV transmission lines. However, other
limitations at Waterloo substation limit the possible power transfer via the
Templers Waterloo 132 kV line to 112 MV.A. This means that the effective N-1
capacity of this network is 112 MV.A. Figure 5 shows the N-1 capacity of the 132 kV
transmission system that supplies the Barossa area and the forecast load growth at
the Templers, Roseworthy and Dorrien connection points. From this graph it is
evident that, beyond 2008/09, ETC compliant supply to the Barossa area will no
longer be possible with the current system configuration.
The Para 275/132 kV transformer feeds both the Mid-North and the Eastern Hills
transmission regions of South Australia. If, during times of peak load under the
existing system configuration, an outage of the Templers - Waterloo 132 kV line
occurs, pumping loads in the Eastern Hills region will need to be constrained to
prevent the overloading of this transformer. Similarly, the two Robertstown
275/132 kV transformers feed both the Mid-North and the Riverland regions of
South Australia. At times of peak load, an outage of one of the Robertstown
275/132 kV transformers will require Murraylink transfer (import or export) to be
constrained to prevent the overloading of the remaining transformer.
In order to avoid these constraints, and satisfy the ETC reliability standards at the
Templers, Dorrien and Roseworthy connection points, augmentation of the
transmission system is necessary.

6. Addressing Limitations: Options Considered
ElectraNet considers both network and non-network options for addressing
emerging network limitations.
In this particular case demand side management, generator network support and
transmission network options were investigated.
The negotiation of demand side management agreements with high demand
customers within the Barossa area would delay the need for reinforcement to the
transmission system. The extent of this delay would be dependant upon the amount
of load that is available for shedding under contingency conditions. Any demand
side management initiative would only act as an interim measure and reinforcement
of the transmission system would ultimately still be required due to ongoing load
growth within the region.
In order to assess potential demand side management opportunities within the
Barossa area, ElectraNet requested that ETSA Utilities contact its customers on
ElectraNets behalf in order to determine whether there were any interested parties.
ElectraNet also discussed demand side management strategies with a direct
connect customer within the area. None of the parties contacted expressed an
interest in participating in a demand side management scheme.
The option of establishing a generator network support agreement with an existing
generator within the Barossa area was examined by ElectraNet.
Several transmission network options were also developed for augmentation of the
electricity supply to the Barossa area.
Finally the following three options were subjected to the Regulatory Test for
reliability augmentations:
1. 275 /132 kV injection at a greenfields site adjacent to the existing Templers
132 /66 kV substation feeding directly into the existing Dorrien 132/33 kV
substation;
2. the installation of capacitor banks at Templers 132/ 66 kV substation followed
by 132 kV network reinforcement; and
3. the establishment of a transmission network support contract utilising the
existing Angaston Power Station and applying augmentations to the 132 kV
network in the Mid-North region as required.
These options are considered in more detail in sections 7.2, 7.3 and 7.4 of this
Application Notice.

7.2.1 Transformer Capacity
The ultimate network configuration proposed by this option would result in the entire
load at Dorrien substation being supplied via two 275/132 kV transformers at
Templers West substation. Under this configuration, the 160 MV.A transformers at
Templers West would be adequate to supply the load at Dorrien under N-1
conditions until 2041/42. The existing 132 kV transmission lines that supply Dorrien,
however, will only be adequate until 2032/33, at which time additional transmission
line capacity will be required into the area. Furthermore, since Dorrien substation
has significant space constraints, this transmission capacity must be sourced from a
new substation. For this reason, the selection of 160 MV.A transformers at
Templers West 275/132 kV substation is considered prudent given the existing
network infrastructure.
7.2.2 Scope of Works
The initial stage of works would require the installation of the following primary plant
at Templers West 275/132 kV substation, as shown in Figure 8:
One 160 MV.A 275/132 kV transformer;
Three 275 kV circuit breakers; and
One 132 kV circuit breaker.
Minor works would also be required at the existing Templers 132/33 kV substation
during the initial stage of Option 1, as shown in Figure 9. One circuit breaker at
Templers 132/33 kV substation requires replacing in order to re-establish the
previously abandoned Roseworthy exit using part of the Roseworthy-Dorrien
132 kV transmission line. The remainder of this line would then be used to establish
a connection from the 275/132 kV transformer via a 132 kV circuit breaker at
Templers West substation to Dorrien substation.
The second stage of Option 1 involves the addition of a 12 Mvar capacitor bank at
Roseworthy 132/11 kV substation. This stage would require the following primary
plant:
Three 132 kV circuit breakers at Roseworthy substation; and
12 Mvar 132 kV capacitor bank at Roseworthy substation.
The third stage of Option 1 involves the installation of the following primary plant at
Templers West 275/132 kV substation, as shown in Figure 8:
A second 160 MV.A 275/132 kV transformer;
Three 275 kV circuit breakers; and
One 132 kV circuit breaker.

7.3 Option 2 Capacitor banks at Templers followed by 132 kV
reinforcement
This option proposes delaying major works in the Barossa area by installing
capacitor banks at the existing Templers 132/33 kV substation for voltage support.
The addition of capacitor banks to the existing Templers substation would require a
complete rebuild of that substation to accommodate the new plant and equipment.
Since Templers substation requires rebuilding, the opportunity would be taken to
turn the existing Roseworthy-Dorrien 132 kV line in and out of Templers substation,
thus saving on network losses. These works would then be followed by
augmentation of the 132 kV network once the reactive support of the installed
capacitor banks is exhausted.
Table 4 provides the required timing for each of the stages for this option and the
estimated capital cost of each stage over the 20 year planning period. Schematic
representations of the three stages of Option 2 are shown in Figure 10, Figure 11
and Figure 12.

7.3.1 Transformer Capacity
The 275/132 kV 160 MV.A transformer specified for Option 2 would be installed
parallel to the existing 275/132 kV 160 MV.A transformer at Para substation.
Because the N-1 transformer capacity at a given two transformer substation is
equal to the lowest rated transformer installed, and the existing 275/132 kV
transformer at Para has a significant service life remaining, it is difficult to justify
installing a transformer with higher rating than 160 MV.A. Furthermore, ElectraNet
has system spares available for this size transformer. Thus a replacement would be
readily available if a transformer at Para failed. For these reasons, the selection of a
160 MV.A 275/132 kV transformer was considered prudent for this option.
7.3.2 Scope of Works
The first stage of works required for Option 2 involves the construction of Templers
West 132/66 kV substation including 2x15 Mvar capacitor banks adjacent to the
existing Templers substation. The existing transformers at Templers substation
would be left in place and connected into the new Templers West substation and
the remainder of the old Templers yard would be removed. Templers West
substation would initially be built as a three diameter 1 breaker substation with
two capacitor bank bays. The substation layout will be designed to allow for a
further 1 breaker diameter during later stages of development. This arrangement,
as shown in Figure 13, would require the following primary plant at Templers West
substation:
Eleven 132 kV circuit breakers; and
Two 15 Mvar 132 kV capacitor banks.
The second stage of works required for Option 2, three years after the initial stage,
involves the addition of a second 275/132 kV transformer at Para substation, as
shown in Figure 15, and the addition of a new 132 kV transmission line from Para
substation to Templers substation, as shown in Figure 11. The construction of the
new line would be partially achieved by rebuilding the existing Para to Roseworthy
132 kV transmission line as a double circuit 132 kV line.
The second stage of works would require the following primary plant, as shown in
Figure 13, Figure 14 and Figure 15:
Two 132 kV circuit breakers at Templers West substation;
Five 132 kV circuit breakers at Para substation;
Two 275 kV circuit breakers at Para substation; and
A single 275/132 kV 200 MV.A transformer at Para substation.
Further reinforcement would then be required in 2026/27 to prevent the overloading
of the remaining Para 275/132 kV transformer after the loss of the first 275/132 kV
transformer and also to prevent the overloading of the Para-Roseworthy 132 kV line
after the loss of the new Para-Templers 132 kV line. The option includes rebuilding
of the Templers-Waterloo 132 kV line as a double circuit line at this stage as it
resolves both of these issues. This arrangement is shown in Figure 12 while the
works required at Templers West substation is shown in Figure 14.

7.4 Option 3 Generation support followed by 275/132 kV injection at
Templers West
This option proposes the use of Angaston Power Station, an existing generator
connected to ETSA Utilities Angaston substation, for network support to defer the
requirement for major expenditure on new transmission assets. Once adequate
reactive margins are no longer available within the Barossa area with generation
network support running, a transmission 275/132 kV injection solution would then
be required at Templers West as described in Option 1. 275/132 kV injection at
Templers West was selected for this option over further reinforcement of the 132 kV
system within the area due to the clear cost advantages presented by this solution
during early stages of development.
When Angaston Power Station is dispatched for network support purposes, the
generators would be required to stay on-line for planned and unplanned N-1
outages. However, current operating practice requires that the power station shuts
down and does not allow any machine starts once supply to the Barossa is
radialised.

The existing 132 kV transmission network between Para substation and Waterloo
substation utilises three-pole circuit breakers. Under single phase fault conditions,
three-pole circuit breakers trip the entire line and then lock open. Patrolling of the
faulted line is then necessary before the line may be restored. If these three-pole
circuit breakers are replaced by single-pole circuit breakers, only the faulted phase
will be tripped and then restored once the fault is cleared. This reduces the impact
of clearing the fault on Angaston Power Station, restores the line immediately for
most single phase fault conditions and removes the need for patrolling the line.
Furthermore, the risk of islanding the power station is greatly reduced due to the
shorter amount of time a line would remain out of service. This risk would be further
mitigated through the upgrading of ETSA Utilities protection systems at Angaston
and Dorrien substations.
ETSA Utilities has advised that it will need to augment its distribution system
between Angaston and Dorrien in order for this solution to be practical and meet the
requirements of the NER with respect to system security. The required
augmentations involve the addition of duplicate high speed telecommunications
links from Dorrien to Angaston and duplicate 33 kV line protection at Dorrien and
Angaston substations.
To ensure that adequate reactive margins are maintained in the Mid-North region,
20 Mvar of capacitor banks must be installed on the existing Templers 132 kV bus
and 12 Mvar of capacitor banks must be installed on the Roseworthy 132 kV bus.
These augmentations would ensure that a generator network support arrangement
would meet NER requirements until 2016/17. At this time it would be necessary to
establish Templers West 275/132 kV substation to ensure that adequate voltages
are maintained within the Barossa area. Schematic representations of the three
stages of Option 3 are shown in Figure 16 and Figure 17.
Table 5 provides the required timing for each of the stages for this option and the
estimated capital cost of each stage over the 20 year planning period. These capital
costs exclude operating costs associated with generation network support. As part
of the detailed financial analysis undertaken by ElectraNet on each option
considered, these operating costs were included. Further discussion of this analysis
is provided in Sections 9 and 10 of this Application Notice.

7.4.1 Scope of Works
The first stage of works required for Option 3 involves the installation of capacitor
banks at Templers and Roseworthy substations (as shown in Figure 18 and Figure
19), and the replacement of circuit breakers in the Mid-North region (as shown in
Figure 20, for the case of Dorrien substation, to allow for single pole reclosing). The
third 132/33 kV transformer shown at Dorrien substation in Figure 20 will not be
installed as part of the Templers augmentation, but will form part of a separate
project. These arrangements would require the following primary plant:
Three 132 kV circuit breakers at Roseworthy substation;
12 Mvar 132 kV capacitor bank at Roseworthy substation;
Three 132 kV circuit breakers at Templers substation;
20 Mvar 132 kV capacitor bank at Templers substation;
Three 132 kV circuit breakers at Dorrien substation; and
Two 132 kV circuit breakers at Waterloo substation.
The second stage of works required for Option 3 is identical to the initial stage of
works previously described for Option 1. Templers West substation would be
established at this time with a single 275/132 kV 160 MV.A transformer, as shown
in Figure 16 and Figure 17. The anticipated ultimate layout for Templers West
substation, as shown in Figure 21, comprises two 1 breaker diameters and two
160 MV.A 275/132 kV transformers. The initial stage of works will require the
installation of the following primary plant at Templers West 275/132 kV substation:
One 160 MV.A 275/132 kV transformer;
Three 275 kV circuit breakers; and
One 132 kV circuit breaker.
Minor works would also be required at the existing Templers 132/33 kV substation
during the second stage of Option 3. One circuit breaker at Templers 132/33 kV
substation requires replacing in order to re-establish the previously abandoned
Roseworthy exit using part of the Roseworthy-Dorrien 132 kV transmission line.
This is shown in Figure 19. The remainder of this line would then be used to
establish a connection from the 275/132 kV transformer via a 132 kV circuit breaker
at Templers West substation to Dorrien substation.

Three 275 kV circuit breakers; and
One 132 kV circuit breaker.
The existing Templers-Dorrien 132 kV transmission line would then be used to
connect the second 275/132 kV transformer via a 132 kV circuit breaker at
Templers West substation to Dorrien substation.

7.4.2 Transformer Capacity
Option 3 is effectively a delayed version of Option 1 and so the 275/132 kV
transformer specified for this option is the same as that specified for Option 1. As
with Option 1, the ultimate network configuration proposed by this option would
result in the entire load at Dorrien substation being supplied via two 275/132 kV
transformers at Templers West substation. Under this configuration, the 160 MV.A
transformers at Templers West would be adequate to supply the load at Dorrien
under N-1 conditions until 2041/42. The existing 132 kV transmission lines that
supply Dorrien, however, would only be adequate until 2032/33, at which time
additional transmission line capacity would be required into the area. For this
reason, the selection of 160 MV.A transformers at Templers West 275/132 kV
substation is considered prudent for this option given the existing network
infrastructure.

8. Scenarios Considered
8.1 Context for Evaluation of Options
All feasible options to the identified supply requirements must be viewed in the
context of wider developments in the NEM. ElectraNet is not aware of any inter-
state or intra-state transmission network augmentations that would impact the
reliability or quality of electricity supply to the Barossa area, as discussed in this
Application Notice.
8.2 Assumed Market Development Scenarios
The Regulatory Test for reliability augmentations requires that options to address
network requirements be assessed against a number of reasonable scenarios.
Those scenarios need to consider:
The existing network;
Future network developments;
Variations in load growth;
Committed generation and demand side developments; and
Potential generation and demand side developments.
The purpose of this approach is to test the PV costs of the options being evaluated
under a range of plausible scenarios.
8.2.1 Existing Network and Future Transmission Developments
As discussed in Section 7.1 of this report, existing and future network developments
that have the potential to impact supply arrangements to the Mid-North region have
been included as anticipated projects in the underlying analysis.
8.2.2 Variations in Demand Growth
The forecast demand growth used in this assessment was based on medium
economic conditions and hot weather forecasts (10% Probability of Exceedance, or
PoE) for electricity usage. Use of 10% PoE demand forecasts is standard
ElectraNet practice when planning the transmission system.
The forecasts include all known information about existing and planned demand-
side management initiatives, and include independent forecasts of existing and
planned local embedded generation.

For the purposes of the Mid-North augmentation studies, scenarios assuming both
high (3.5%) and low (2.2%) demand growth were also considered to test the
robustness of the analysis which is based on medium load growth (2.7% per
annum).
8.2.3 Existing and Committed Generators and Demand Side Developments
The use of demand side management within the Barossa area was considered as
part of the option development process. Major customers on both the Transmission
Network and the ETSA Utilities owned Distribution Network were contacted to
identify demand side management candidates. No demand side management
solutions were identified as a result of these enquiries.
The utilisation of existing or committed generation within the Barossa area for
transmission support was examined and forms the basis for Option 3 of this
Application Notice. ElectraNet is not aware of any other existing or committed
generators within the area that could provide a viable transmission network support
option.
8.2.4 Potential New Generation
ElectraNet is not aware of any committed generation projects that will directly
impact the supply to the Barossa area.
As electricity demand continues to grow, it is forecast that additional generation will
be required within the South Australian region. It has been assumed for the
purposes of planning studies examining future supply requirements to the Barossa
area that, although entry of new generation into South Australia will occur in the
foreseeable future to meet the increasing electricity demand, that new generation
plant will be located such that its direct impact on the reliability of supply to the
Barossa area will be immaterial.

9. Format and Inputs to Analysis
9.1 Regulatory Test Requirements
The Regulatory Test requires that, for reliability augmentations, the recommended
option be the option that minimises the present value of costs, compared with a
number of alternative options in a majority of reasonable scenarios.
The Regulatory Test contains guidelines for the methodology to be used to identify
the lowest cost option. Information to be considered includes construction costs,
operating and maintenance costs, and the cost of complying with existing and
anticipated laws and regulations. However, the Regulatory Test specifically
excludes indirect costs and costs that cannot be measured as a cost in terms of
financial transactions in the electricity market.
9.2 Inputs to Analysis
The Regulatory Test has been carried out using a discounted cash flow model and
a pre-tax real Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC) of 8.50% as the discount
rate, which equates to a nominal WACC of 11.36%.
Cost inputs to the economic analysis are described below.
9.3 Cost of Network Augmentations
The economic analysis considers all foreseeable cost impacts of the proposed
network augmentations on market participants.
The capital cost
2
to implement each of the feasible options outlined in Section 6 has
been estimated by ElectraNet based on a conceptual scope of works. Sensitivity
studies have been carried out using variations in the capital cost estimates of plus
and minus 20%.
9.4 Other Inputs to Analysis
The economic analysis includes the costs of anticipated future projects that will be
needed to maintain the required reliability standards for the Barossa area during the
twenty-year analysis period.
The timings for anticipated projects are based on meeting future electricity supply
requirements for the Barossa area using load forecasts prepared by ETSA Utilities
in April 2009 and published in ElectraNets 2009 Annual Planning Review. Actual
timings of the anticipated projects may change as a result of developments in the
Mid-North region and other market developments during the twenty-year planning
horizon.

The sensitivity of the timing of the anticipated projects to a range of market
development scenarios, and therefore the incidence of the capital expenditure, has
been included as part of the economic analysis to ensure that the findings are
robust.

10.4 Inter-network Impact
ElectraNet is required under the NER to assess whether a new large network asset
is reasonably likely to have a material inter-network impact. ElectraNet has
determined that the proposed new large network asset will have minimal impact on
inter-regional transfer capacity. The proposed new large network asset improves
inter-network transfer capability under most conditions except for the case where
light load, maximum export conditions coincide with maximum generation at
Waterloo Windfarm. Under this scenario, transfer capability is reduced by less than
2%. This is not considered to be a material change to the transfer capability as
specified by the NER.

12. Compliance with Service Obligations
Section 4 of this Application Notice sets out the service obligations that ElectraNet
is required to meet for the transmission system within the Barossa area. The
following discussion demonstrates the compliance of the preferred option by
identifying the worst case credible contingencies that trigger each stage of
development for this option.
At no time does Option 1 result in forecast agreed maximum demand exceeding the
level of transformer or line capacity.
Once Templers West substation is established in Stage 1 of Option 1, no single
credible contingency will result in lost load or the need for under voltage load
shedding or excursions in voltage outside the accepted tolerance range under the
NER. Under the worst case credible contingency, the loss of either the Templers
West 275/132 kV 160 MV.A transformer or the Templers West Dorrien132 kV
transmission line (refer to Figure 6) under peak load conditions, NER compliant
supply to the Templers, Dorrien and Roseworthy connection points will be
maintained. The implementation of this solution also meets the applicable deadline
of 30 J une 2011 under the ETC.
Immediately prior to the proposed 2021 implementation of Stage 2 of Option 1,
under single credible contingency conditions, voltage control within the Barossa
area will once again become a limitation of the transmission system. The
establishment of Stage 2 of this option will mitigate these limitations.
In 2024, immediately prior to the implementation of Stage 3, under peak load single
credible contingency conditions the reactive margin at Dorrien connection point will
not meet NER requirements. Stage 3 of Option 1 resolves this limitation.
Prior to the completion of Stage 3, the worst case N-2 credible contingency within
the area is the loss of both the Templers West 275/132 kV transformer and the Para
Roseworthy 132 kV line at peak load periods. This contingency, and several other
N-2 configurations, will require under-voltage load shedding to be in place to ensure
system security. Such protection devices will ensure compliance with both the NER
and the ETC.
Once Stage 3 is complete, under-voltage load shedding will still be required for
some N-2 system configurations, such as the loss of both the Para-Roseworthy
132 kV transmission line and the Robertstown-Waterloo 132 kV transmission line
under peak load conditions; this is within ElectraNets obligations under the ETC,
which requires only N-1 supply to these connection points, and the NER which
requires system security be maintained at all times.

13. Summary and Conclusions
The following summary and conclusions have been drawn from the analysis
presented in this report:
The augmentation proposed in this document is defined as a reliability
augmentation under the NER as it will prevent interruptions to supply during
peak load periods under critical single-contingency events in the transmission
network supplying the Templers, Roseworthy and Dorrien connection points.
There is no acceptable do-nothing option. ElectraNet is required to meet the
new ETC reliability standard for the Templers and Dorrien connection points
and maintain NER compliant transmission system voltages within the area.
This is not possible given recent load growth and the existing network
configuration.
Planning studies were undertaken to evaluate potential network options that
would address emerging network limitations in the electricity supply to the
Templers, Roseworthy and Dorrien connection points, from which three
viable options were identified.
Economic analysis carried out in accordance with the Regulatory Test has
identified the preferred option, Option 1 (establishing a new 275/132 kV
substation adjacent to the existing Templers 132/33 kV substation feeding
directly into Dorrien 132/33 kV substation, that will be known as Templers
West 275/132 kV substation) as the least-cost solution over the 20-year
period of the analysis in all of the credible scenarios considered. Sensitivity
studies demonstrate that the results of that analysis are robust to variations in
capital cost and other key input variables. Option 1 is therefore considered to
satisfy the Regulatory Test.

14. Draft Recommendation
Based on the conclusions drawn from the preceding analysis, it is recommended
that the following be progressed:
Establish on an ElectraNet owned site adjacent to the existing Templers
132/33 kV substation, a new 275/132 kV substation comprising one
160 MV.A 275/132 kV transformer feeding directly into Dorrien 132/33 kV
substation;
Restore to service the Roseworthy exit at the existing Templers 132/33 kV
substation to allow for the use of part of the existing Roseworthy Dorrien
132 kV line to feed Dorrien directly from Templers West; and
Provide 275 kV supply to Templers West 275/132 kV substation from the
existing Para Brinkworth 275 kV transmission line which will be turned in
and out of the new substation.
at a total estimated cost of $36.6m ($2009).
