The first NCAP_AFC entry is just a flag for triggering independent NCAP_AFC equations.

Normally, NCAP_AFC equations are defined for the whole PG group, and in that case the normal EQ_CAPACT equations are not generated at all. But in this case it is more convenient to keep the EQ_CAPACT equations for defining the availability factor for the storage capacity. Therefore, the flag CH.0.PROR-1.ACT.DAYNITE -1.

The second NCAP_AFC entry defines the maximum DAYNITE input availability factor: The input flow is assumed evenly distributed, at the level of 40% of the turbine capacity. So, the value is 0.4. You could also define timeslice-specific values for it.

The third NCAP_AFC entry defines the maximum DAYNITE output availability factor, which is assumed 100% of the capacity. Thus the value is 1.

Finally this NCAP_AF parameter defines the pond storage availability factor. As mentioned, the size is 0.15 of the nominal daily maximum production, and thus the value is 0.15.
