LCOE inconsistency, Cash Flow

Hi, I'm simulating a 100 MW Power Tower CSP plant (without TES). In the "Summary" of results, SAM tells me that the resulting nominal LCOE is 26.02 cents / kwh, which coincides with the information shown in the "Cash Flow" tab. However, if I check the detail of the cash flow with the "Send to Excel with Equations" tool, it turns out that the nominal LCOE shown is 29.44 cents / kwh.
Reviewing, I can see that the problem is that in the Cash Flow tab and in the Excel sheet that delivers the program, NPV (Net Present Value) values ​​are very different, generating that these sources deliver different LCOE values. Apparently what happens is that both sources take different values ​​for the total cost of the project.

I enclose some images to expose the problem, in addition to the Excel spreadsheet, where I mark with red the cells with the LCOE information.

I would appreciate any help you can give me to resolve this inconsistency.

Regards,
Ismael
