Storage processes in peaking constraints
#5

I am not fully able to follow you, because in TIMES, you can only have a single capacity for each process. So, you must choose between having the storage capacity or the electrical output capacity.

If you choose to model the process with the storage capacity of 0.02031 PJ, you are right, in that case it would have a peak contribution 4.23125*10^-4 PJ, if NCAP_PKCNT=1 and PRC_CAPACT=1.

However, if you choose to model the storage process with an electrical capacity of 1.164 GW, the process would then have a peak contribution 0.764748 PJ,  if NCAP_PKCNT=1 and PRC_CAPACT=31.536. Your max. output flow during the peak timeslice would also be automatically limited by the capacity to the amount of 0.764748 PJ.

Of course, in the first case you could set  NCAP_PKCNT=1807.4, and then your peak contribution would become  0.764748 PJ also in that case.  However, your max. output flow during the peak would still remain 0.02031*365/4 = 1.853 PJ (full discharge during the peak timeslice).
