Please refer to the Victorian Temperature profiles. These profiles are applied in AEMO applications and the same temperature profiles are repeated each year.

Dynamic Telemetered Ratings
Dynamic ratings are available for selected circuits. These ratings are telemetered as a real time quantity to AEMO for use in dispatch timeframe (they have the same identifier as the Victorian Temperature profiles identifier, but they additionally include the suffix “_D” at the end of the identifier).

The temperature is telemetered as a real time quantity to AEMO for use in the dispatch timeframe. Predefined temperature profiles are applied to the predispatch timeframe. Please refer to Tasmanian Temperature profiles. These profiles are applied in AEMO applications and the same temperature profiles are repeated each year.

Dynamic Telemetered Ratings
Dynamic ratings are available for selected circuits. These ratings are telemetered as a real time quantity to AEMO for use in dispatch timeframe (they have the same identifier as the Tasmanian Temperature profiles identifier).
