dc.description.abstractMetrics of the effects of these events on emissions, and plots of the predicted emissions of each unit in standardized episodes are developed to illustrate and compare the impact of these events on generator emissions and heat rates over time.
dc.description.abstractSimulation episodes are created with each generator subjected to highly flexible hourly power demands to explore the generator's emissions and heat rate profiles over a wide range of inputs to key generator events such as part-load operation, startup, shutdown and ramping. As a result, a complete picture of the impact of these events on emissions and heat rates is obtained.
dc.description.abstractWe develop emissions functions by using regression analysis on historical hourly emissions and heat input measurements reported to EPA to estimate heat rates as well as NOx and SO2 emissions for fuel-fired generators. 8 fossil fuel units of 4 different types - coal, natural gas steam, natural gas simple cycle and natural gas combined cycle are considered in the analysis.
