Calculations.

(a) Duty-cycle emissions. This section describes the calculation of duty-cycle emissions, in terms of grams per brake horsepower hour (g/bhp-hr). The calculation involves the weighted summing of the product of the throttle notch mass emission rates and dividing by the weighted sum of the brake horsepower. The final reported duty-cycle emission test results are calculated as follows:

(1)(i) Eidc=(Σ(Mij)(Fj))/(Σ(BHPj)(Fj))

Where:

Eidc=Duty-cycle weighted, brake-specific mass emission rate of pollutant i (i.e., HC, CO, NOX or PM and, if appropriate, THCE or NMHC) in grams per brake horsepower-hour;

Mij=the mass emission rate pollutant i for mode j;

Fj=the applicable weighting factor listed in Table B132-1 for mode j;

BHPj=the measured brake horsepower for mode j.

(ii) Table B132-1 follows:

(2) Example: For the line-haul cycle, for locomotives equipped with normal and low idle, and with dynamic brake, the brake-specific emission rate for HC would be calculated as:

EHCdc=[(MHCla) (0.190) + (MHC1) (0.190) + (MHC2) (0.125) + (MHC3) (0.065) + (MHC4) (0.065) + (MHC5) (0.052) + (MHC6) (0.044) + (MHC7) (0.038) + (MHC8) (0.039) + (MHC9) (0.030) + (MHC10) (0.162)]/[(BHP1a) (0.190) + (BHP1) (0.190) + (BHP2) (0.125) + (BHP3) (0.065) + (BHP4) (0.065) + (BHP5) (0.052) + (BHP6) (0.044) + (BHP7) (0.038) + (BHP8) (0.039) + (BHP9) (0.030) + (BHP10) (0.162)]

(3) In each mode, brake horsepower output is the power that the engine delivers as output (normally at the flywheel), as defined in § 92.2.

(i) For locomotive testing (or engine testing using a locomotive alternator/generator instead of a dynamometer), brake horsepower is calculated as:

BHP=HPout/Aeff + HPacc

Where:

HPout=Measured horsepower output of the alternator/generator.

Aeff=Efficiency of the alternator/generator.

HPacc=Accessory horsepower.

(ii) For engine dynamometer testing, brake horsepower is determined from the engine speed and torque.

(4) For locomotive equipped with features that shut the engine off after prolonged periods of idle, the measured mass emission rate Mi1 (and Mi1a as applicable) shall be multiplied by a factor equal to one minus the estimated fraction reduction in idling time that will result in use from the shutdown feature. Application of this adjustment Start Printed Page 58954is subject to the Administrator's approval.

(b) Throttle notch emissions. This paragraph (b) describes the calculation of throttle notch emissions for all operating modes, including: idle (normal and low, as applicable); dynamic brake; and traction power points. The throttle notch (operating mode) emission test results, final reported values and values used in paragraph (a)(1) of this section are calculated as follows:

Where:

MAL mode=Total aldehyde mass emissions (grams per hour) for each test mode.

(2) Mass Emissions—Raw exhaust measurements. For raw exhaust measurements mass emissions (grams per hour) of each species for each mode:

(i) General equations. (A) The mass emission rate, MX mode (g/hr), of each pollutant (HC, NOX, CO2, CO, CH4 CH3 OH, CH3 CH2 OH, CH2 O, CH3 CH2 O) for each operating mode for raw measurements is determined based on one of the following equations:

(B) All measured volumes and volumetric flow rates must be corrected to standard temperature and pressure prior to calculations.

(iii) Calculation of individual pollutant masses. Calculations for mass emission are shown here in multiple forms. One set of equations is used when sample is analyzed dry (equations where the concentrations are expressed as DX), and the other set is used when the sample is analyzed wet (equations where the concentrations are expressed as WX). When samples are analyzed for some constituents dry and for some constituents wet, the wet concentrations must be converted to dry concentrations, and the equations for dry concentrations used. Also, the equations for HC, NMHC, CO, and NOX have multiple forms that are algebraically equivalent: An explicit form that requires intermediate calculation of Vm and DVol or WVol; and an implicit form that uses only the concentrations (e.g., DCO) and the mass flow rate of the fuel. For these calculations, either form may be used.

(A) Iterative calculation of conversion factor. The conversion factor KW is calculated from the fractional volume of water in the exhaust on a dry basis (DH2O=volume of water in exhaust/dry volume of exhaust). Precise calculation of the conversion factor KW must be done by iteration, since it requires the dry concentration of HC, but HC emissions are measured wet.

DVol=(Vm)(Wf)/((CMWf)(DHC/106 + DCO/106 + DCO2/100))

(2) This estimate is then used in the following equations to calculate DVolair, then DH2O, then KW, which allows DHC to be determined more accurately from WHC:
