I am using AnswerTimes Software. I am modelling with data periods: 2012, 2017, 2022, 2027, 2032, 2037, 2042 and result periods: 2012, 2017, 2022, 2027, 2032, 2037, 2042.

Question: Now, I have to model a process whose capacity is to be 100 MW but is will be commissioned in Year 2018.

Case 1: Presently I am using NCAP_BND (fixed) as 2012- 0.0000; 2017- 0.0100; 2022- 0.0000; 2027- 0.0000 and so on. Futher to start the capacity in 2018 I am using NCAP_Start with 2018 as the value.

Along with this daily NCAP_AFS, NCAP_COST, NCAP_FOM and NCAP_TLIFE is entered into the model.

Result: the model the is not picking up the process.

Case 2: Then I tried to model another way is by removing NCAP_BND and Adding a CAP_BND (Fixed) with values 2012- 0.0000; 2017- 0.0100; 2022- 0.0100; 2027- 0.0100 and so on.

Result: In this case the model picks up the capacity but it coming in period 2022 and in not in 2017.

So i would like to know the right way of modeling this kind of process.
