In TIMES, internal calculation of the interest during construction (IDC) is supported only by assuming that the construction costs are evenly distributed over the lead time specified (NCAP_ILED). In many cases this gives a sufficiently good approximation.

When it is not sufficient, you can always calculate the IDC manually and add it to the overnight cost. Use the resulting total value as the NCAP_COST, and remove any ILED>0.
