40 CFR Appendix B to Part 1036 - Transient Duty Cycles
(a) This appendix specifies transient duty cycles for the engine and powertrain testing described in § 1036.510, as follows:
(1) The transient duty cycle for testing engines involves a schedule of normalized engine speed and torque values.
(2) The transient duty cycles for powertrain testing involves a schedule of vehicle speeds and road grade. Determine road grade at each point based on the peak rated power of the powertrain system, Prated, determined in § 1036.527 and road grade coefficients using the following equation:
(b) The following transient duty cycle applies for spark-ignition engines and powertrains:
(c) The following transient duty cycle applies for compression ignition engines and powertrains:
