Formatted abstract
This paper investigates the effect of wind generation in the states comprising the  Australian National Electricity Market (NEM). The methodology utilize an agent based model, which contains many features salient to the NEM including intra-state and inter-state transmission branches, regional location of generators and load centres and accommodation of unit commitment features. The model uses a Direct Current Optimal Power Flow (DC OPF) algorithm to determine optimal dispatch of generation plant, power flows on transmission branches and wholesale prices. We present results of the impact of wind generation on wholesale prices, dispatch patterns, carbon emissions and transmission network adequacy within the NEM.
