OZ-ENERGY-ANALYSIS.ORG - open science for the new millennium
This is Round Two data (first presented 6th August 2010); prior to this we worked with Round One data, which remains current in some other areas of the site.
The wind generation data we have is from AEMO (www.aemo.com.au); there are a set of files that have 5min generation data for ~20 assorted generators, going back to the end of 2005 in some cases. The source data is here:
http://www.nemweb.com.au/REPORTS/CURRENT/Next_Day_Actual_Gen/ http://www.nemweb.com.au/REPORTS/ARCHIVE/Next_Day_Actual_Gen/ - in monthly zip files
We extract data for the following 13 Wind Farms:

As examined below, this data is somewhat messy in the earlier years. Please be careful in using this data.
There remain unresolved issues with some data values, including negative value. At this point the data we give here is simply a collation of the AEMO data; at some point we will provide a cleaned version.
And please note the issues with "Portland" as in comment #8 below. For now it appears that the Portland data here is a combination of the Cape Bridgewater and Cape Nelson South Wind Farms, at a total capacity of 102 MW (and not 164).
Extracting and collating the data from the many hundreds of individual AEMO files,
(i) Weekly averages (MW average) in a basic text / table format,
(ii) Daily totals (MW average) in a basic text / table format,
(iii) All data (5 min) for the above 13 WFs in OzEA flatfile format.
All data on a line per day basis. Open up in a basic text editor to inspect (no wrap). All values are in MW (i.e. the average output over the interval).
Right now just providing some plots:
Some of these data are clearly problematic for analysis in the earlier parts.
Will provide commentry shortly. [7th Aug 2010]
