Explanations as to why this cost differs from others
Limitations of this cost estimate
Typical average output is calculated from the 100% gross efficiency, the central 86.3% availability, the central 90% load factor and the central 5% auxilary power (86.2%90%95% = 74%). Note that the source gives ranges for these numbers, which we should perhaps imprive the tool to accept.
