As stated in § 63.7520, you must comply with the following requirements for establishing operating limits:

Table 7 to Subpart DDDDD of Part 63 - Establishing Operating Limits a b

If you have an applicable emission limit for . . . And your operating limits are based on . . . You must . . . Using . . . According to the following requirements
1. PM, TSM, or mercury a. Wet scrubber operating parameters i. Establish a site-specific minimum scrubber pressure drop and minimum flow rate operating limit according to § 63.7530(b) (1) Data from the scrubber pressure drop and liquid flow rate monitors and the PM, TSM, or mercury performance test (a) You must collect scrubber pressure drop and liquid flow rate data every 15 minutes during the entire period of the performance tests.
(b) Determine the lowest hourly average scrubber pressure drop and liquid flow rate by computing the hourly averages using all of the 15-minute readings taken during each performance test.
b. Electrostatic precipitator operating parameters (option only for units that operate wet scrubbers) i. Establish a site-specific minimum total secondary electric power input according to § 63.7530(b) (1) Data from the voltage and secondary amperage monitors during the PM or mercury performance test (a) You must collect secondary voltage and secondary amperage for each ESP cell and calculate total secondary electric power input data every 15 minutes during the entire period of the performance tests.
(b) Determine the average total secondary electric power input by computing the hourly averages using all of the 15-minute readings taken during each performance test.
c. Opacity i. Establish a site-specific maximum opacity level (1) Data from the opacity monitoring system during the PM performance test (a) You must collect opacity readings every 15 minutes during the entire period of the performance tests.
(b) Determine the average hourly opacity reading for each performance test run by computing the hourly averages using all of the 15-minute readings taken during each performance test run.
(c) Determine the highest hourly average opacity reading measured during the test run demonstrating compliance with the PM (or TSM) emission limitation.
2. HCl a. Wet scrubber operating parameters i. Establish site-specific minimum effluent pH and flow rate operating limits according to § 63.7530(b) (1) Data from the pH and liquid flow-rate monitors and the HCl performance test (a) You must collect pH and liquid flow-rate data every 15 minutes during the entire period of the performance tests.
(b) Determine the hourly average pH and liquid flow rate by computing the hourly averages using all of the 15-minute readings taken during each performance test.
b. Dry scrubber operating parameters i. Establish a site-specific minimum sorbent injection rate operating limit according to § 63.7530(b) . If different acid gas sorbents are used during the HCl performance test, the average value for each sorbent becomes the site-specific operating limit for that sorbent (1) Data from the sorbent injection rate monitors and HCl or mercury performance test (a) You must collect sorbent injection rate data every 15 minutes during the entire period of the performance tests.
(b) Determine the hourly average sorbent injection rate by computing the hourly averages using all of the 15-minute readings taken during each performance test.
(c) Determine the lowest hourly average of the three test run averages established during the performance test as your operating limit. When your unit operates at lower loads, multiply your sorbent injection rate by the load fraction, as defined in § 63.7575, to determine the required injection rate.
c. Alternative Maximum SO2emission rate i. Establish a site-specific maximum SO2emission rate operating limit according to § 63.7530(b) (1) Data from SO2 CEMS and the HCl performance test (a) You must collect the SO2 emissions data according to § 63.7525(m) during the most recent HCl performance tests.
(b) The maximum SO2emission rate is equal to the highest hourly average SO2emission rate measured during the most recent HCl performance tests.
3. Mercury a. Activated carbon injection i. Establish a site-specific minimum activated carbon injection rate operating limit according to § 63.7530(b) (1) Data from the activated carbon rate monitors and mercury performance test (a) You must collect activated carbon injection rate data every 15 minutes during the entire period of the performance tests.
(b) Determine the hourly average activated carbon injection rate by computing the hourly averages using all of the 15-minute readings taken during each performance test.
(c) Determine the lowest hourly average established during the performance test as your operating limit. When your unit operates at lower loads, multiply your activated carbon injection rate by the load fraction, as defined in § 63.7575, to determine the required injection rate.
4. Carbon monoxide for which compliance is demonstrated by a performance test a. Oxygen i. Establish a unit-specific limit for minimum oxygen level according to § 63.7530(b) (1) Data from the oxygen analyzer system specified in § 63.7525(a) (a) You must collect oxygen data every 15 minutes during the entire period of the performance tests.
(b) Determine the hourly average oxygen concentration by computing the hourly averages using all of the 15-minute readings taken during each performance test.
(c) Determine the lowest hourly average established during the performance test as your minimum operating limit.
5. Any pollutant for which compliance is demonstrated by a performance test a. Boiler or process heater operating load i. Establish a unit specific limit for maximum operating load according to § 63.7520(c) (1) Data from the operating load monitors or from steam generation monitors (a) You must collect operating load or steam generation data every 15 minutes during the entire period of the performance test.
(b) Determine the average operating load by computing the hourly averages using all of the 15-minute readings taken during each performance test.
(c) Determine the highest hourly average of the three test run averages during the performance test, and multiply this by 1.1 (110 percent) as your operating limit.

a Operating limits must be confirmed or reestablished during performance tests.

b If you conduct multiple performance tests, you must set the minimum liquid flow rate and pressure drop operating limits at the higher of the minimum values established during the performance tests. For a minimum oxygen level, if you conduct multiple performance tests, you must set the minimum oxygen level at the lower of the minimum values established during the performance tests.
