Wind and solar capacity factor time series are obtained from .
Demand data are taken from the "P5MIN_REGIONSOLUTION" dataset published on the AEMO Market Data site . We take the "DEMAND_AND_NONSCHEDGEN" column in the data set as the gross demand and "TOTALDEMAND" as the operational demand. The raw data captured from AEMO are recorded state by state; to disaggregate the state demand into zone demand we use the population proportion method illustrated in .
The current transmission limits between zones are also estimated using the data from .
