NOx PPMv - NOx parts per million by volume (PPMv) dry basis normalised to 15% O2
UK Electrical Generation has a balance of gas fired power stations, renewable (primarily wind) and nuclear with reliable published statistics hence its use as a reference.
Guidelines Emissions for Typical Mechanical Drive Prime Movers
|PRIME MOVER||Diesel Engine||Gas Engine||Gas Turbine||Gas Turbine DLE|
Values are typical for machines used for mechanical drive and emergency/black-start power generation applications. Actual results will vary by model, climatic conditions and fuel composition. For Gas Engine and Turbines; values are based on pipeline quality natural gas as fuel. Diesel engines are assumed to be running on highway grade diesel fuel.
DLE - Dry Low Emissions is a technology which uses lean premixed combustion to reduce NOx emissions (Solar Turbines uses the term SoLoNOx™).
