Effective and efficient transmission of electric power from generators to consumers is a vital part of the electricity system. Australia’s national transmission network is the longest AC system in the world, extending 5000km from Queensland to Tasmania to Port Augusta, supplying 19 million residents. As demand continues to grow and the penetration of renewables on the grid increases, the national transmission network will require significant extensions and upgrades. But what is the optimal design to support a very different energy system in the 21st century? Variable and distributed generation and potential large storage systems (such as an electric vehicle fleet) make this a diabolical question that the panel of experts will address in detail.
