The total capacity shortage (or annual capacity shortage) is the total amount of capacity shortage that occurs throughout the year. At the end of the year, this value is used to calculate the capacity shortage fraction.

Note that if each of the four operating reserve inputs (specified in the Constraints window) are set to zero, the total capacity shortage is equal to the total unmet load.
