    Abstract

    The single most important determinant electricity demand on the largest WA electricity network, the South West Inter-connected System (SWIS), is the daily temperature. The highest maximum demands are recorded after sequentially hot days. Summer maximum temperatures can range from the mid-twenties to the mid-forties, resulting in daily peak demand fluctuations from below 2,000 MW and above 4,000 MW. The short-term nature of peak demand in the SWIS is illustrated by the last 800 MW (or 23% of the total generation capacity) being utilised only 3% of the time.
