Lead Engineer - Regulatory and Emerging Technology
WHO IS SHE:
I have recently taken up the position of Lead Engineer – Regulatory and Emerging Technology, within the Network Operations team at Energy Queensland (EQL). This role is responsible for leading key strategic operational initiatives within the Network Operations space, including reviewing and updating our Under Frequency Load Shed (UFLS) schemes, manual/rotational load shed schemes and system restart plans in conjunction with AEMO and Powerlink. I also provide feedback to regulatory consultations, and consider how emerging technologies (such as battery storage systems) may impact or influence the way we operate the network at EQL. I will be developing the strategy for how we operate the network for the future.
I commenced my engineering journey as a Graduate at Ergon Energy (part of Energy Queensland), and I gained experience across the areas of forecasting, planning, line standards, operations, test, commissioning, and operational technology.
I've been in the Network Operations space since 2015, with a 12-month secondment in our engineering commissioning team in 2018/19 where I commissioned the connection assets and associated secondary systems (protection and control) upgrades for a 75MW solar farm connection in central Queensland.
