Dear Dr Antti,

Thank you for your reply.

I still have some doubts on the capacity number interpretation from the model. The number 0.90 MW in 2035 is taken out from the Var_Cap result parameter which shows the installed capacity for a process. If you say that 0.90 is the installed capacity then all the cost calculation from the model are done on this number?

Now if the installed capacity itself is 0.90 MW than the output of the process should not increase more than 0.90 MW in any instance because I am prescribing the Ncap_af of 100% as upper bound. But in my results, the outputs are increasing to as high as 2094 MW, which cannot happen from a battery capacity of 0.90 MW (kindly refer figure 2 and 3 on this link https://www.energy.gov/eere/solar/articl...torage-101). Therefore, I am bit confuse how to interpret the outputs of my process.

How would I interpret the duration of battery storage from these outputs? Furthermore, is there any way to prescribe the hours/duration for storage capacity type.

Regards
