Linking the TIMES undiscounted cost outputs to the objective function
#4
Thanks, Antti.  You're absolutely correct - I was using the OBLONG switch but not the ANNCOST switch, and this was the problem.  I had read the section in Part 3 of the documentation on the ANNCOST switch but hadn't quite understood all of it until reading it again now.

I still don't understand why TIMES doesn't output a Cost_Fom in the 2025 period for the 2012 vintage when the ANNCOST switch is not chosen?  The vintage is still operational in the first year of the 2025 period.  When the $ANNCOST = 'LEV', TIMES produces the correct output in 2025.

Also, from the documentation Part 3 p55, I believe the UserConstraint output should be set to "COST" or "LEVCOST", depending on whether ANNCOST is chosen or not, but in VEDA-BE for me it is set to "-" in both cases.  I'm using TIMES v4.3.2.
