40 CFR 90.426 - Dilute emission sampling calculations

§ 90.426 Dilute emission sampling calculations—gasoline fueled engines.
(a) The final reported emission test results must be computed by use of the following formula:
Where:
AWM = Final weighted brake-specific mass emission rate for an emission (HC, CO, CO2, or NOX) [g/kW-hr]
Wi = Average mass flow rate of an emission (HC, CO, CO2, NOX) from a test engine during mode i [g/hr]
WFi = Weighting factor for each mode i as defined in § 90.410(a).
Pi = Gross average power generated during mode i [kW], calculated from the following equation,
Where:
speed = average engine speed measured during mode i [rev./minute]
torque = average engine torque measured during mode i [N-m]
KHi = NOX humidity correction factor for mode i. This correction factor only affects calculations for tion factor only affects calculations for NOX and is equal to one for all other emissions. KHi is also equal to 1 for all two-stroke engines.
(b) The mass flow rate, Wi in g/hr, of an emission for mode i is determined from the following equation:
Where:
QI = Volumetric flow rate [m3/HR at stp].
Density = Density of a specific emission (DensityHC, DensityCO, DensityCO2, Density NOX) [g/m3].
DFi = Dilution factor of the dilute exhaust during mode i.
CDi = Concentration of the emission (HC, CO, NOX) in dilute exhaust extracted from the CVS during mode i [ppm].
CBi = Concentration of the emission (HC, CO, NOX) in the background sample during mode i [ppm].
STP = Standard temperature and pressure. All volumetric calculations made for the equations in this section are to be corrected to a standard temperature of 20 °C and a standard pressure of 101.3 kPa.
(c) Densities for emissions that are to be measured for this test procedure are:
DensityHC = 576.8 g/m3
DensityNOX = 1912 g/m3
DensityCO = 1164 g/m3
DensityCO2 = 1829 g/m3
(1) The value of DensityHC above is calculated based on the assumption that the fuel used has a hydrogen to carbon ratio of 1:1.85. For other fuels DensityHC can be calculated from the following formula:
Where:
MHC = The molecular weight of the hydrocarbon molecule divided by the number of carbon atoms in the molecule [g/mole].
RSTP = Ideal gas constant for a gas at STP = 0.024065 [m3·mole]
(2) The idealized molecular weight of the exhaust hydrocarbons, i.e., the molecular weight of the hydrocarbon molecule divided by the number of carbon atoms in the molecule, MHC, can be calculated from the following formula:
Where:
MC = Molecular weight of carbon=12.01 [g/mole]
MH = Molecular weight of hydrogen=1.008 [g/mole]
MO = Molecular weight of oxygen=16.00 [g/mole]
α = Hydrogen to carbon ratio of the test fuel
β = Oxygen to carbon ratio of the test fuel
(3) The value of DensityNOX above assumes that NOX is entirely in the form of NO2
(d) The dilution factor, DF, is the ratio of the volumetric flow rate of the background air to that of the raw engine exhaust. The following formula is used to determine DF:
Where:
CDHC = Concentration of HC in the dilute sample [ppm].
CDCO = Concentration of CO in the dilute sample [ppm].
CDCO2 = Concentration of CO2 in the dilute sample [ppm].
(e) The humidity correction factor KH is an adjustment made to measured NOX values. This corrects for the sensitivity that a spark-ignition engine has to the humidity of its combustion air. The following formula is used to determine KH for NOX calculations:
KH = (9.953 H 0.832)
Where:
H = the amount of water in an ideal gas; 40 CFR 1065.645 describes how to determine this value (referred to as xH 2 O).
KH = 1 for two-stroke gasoline engines.
(f) -(g) [Reserved]
(h) The fuel mass flow rate, Fi, can be either measured or calculated using the following formula:
Where:
MFUEL = Mass of fuel consumed by the engine during the mode [g]
T = Duration of the sampling period [hr]
(i) The mass of fuel consumed during the mode smpling period, MFUEL, can be calculated from the following equation:
Where:
GS = Mass of carbon measured during the mode sampling period [g].
R2 = The fuel carbon weight fraction, which is the mass of carbon in fuel per mass of fuel [g/g].
(j) The grams of carbon measured during the mode, GS, can be calculated from the following equation:
Where:
HCmass = mass of hydrocarbon emissions for the mode sampling period [grams].
COmass mass of carbon monoxide emissions for the mode sample period [grams].
CO2mass = mass of carbon dioxide emissions for the mode sample period [grams].
α = The atomic hydrogen-to-carbon ratio of the fuel.
