Reporting LCOE in stochastic models - Pernille.S - 09-04-2019

I have experienced that it is not possible to report LCOE/ Var_NcapR for stochastic model runs. Is this correct? If yes, will it be possible in the future? Pernille

I just tested activating levelized cost reporting in a stochastic run, and it appeared to work fine. The reporting attribute VAR_NcapR subsequently appeared in the *.vd file with values for all SOW, as expected. Therefore, could you please elaborate what you mean by "I have experienced that it is not possible to report LCOE/ Var_NcapR for stochastic model runs"?

Dear Antti, thank you for your investigation. This is good news. I also have a colleague that successfully reported LCOE in a stochastic run in another model. I will test reporting LCOE again the next days to understand what was causing my problem. Previously I did not see Var_NcapR  in the vd-file of my stochastic model runs, only for a deterministic vd-files. Pernille

Dear Antti, LCOE works fine in a stochastic model now. I am not sure what was the issue earlier. I apologies for using your time.
