I am exploring the SMOKE scripts from the 2016v2 platform ftp://newftp.epa.gov/air/emismod/2016/v2/.
For ptegu sector,
For winter ( RUN_MONTHS “1 2 12”)
I have separate emission input files for the winter, such as
EMISINV_A “egucems_epa620_2026_20210609_winter_27jul2021_v0.csv” ,
in the EMISINV_A file column14 has annual emissions (sum of winter months only), and WINTER months data.
Now, for the same sector
for the same duration winter ( RUN_MONTHS “1 2 12”)
I have a NEW FILE with two changes in the emission input files. I want to keep the “egunoncems*” file as it is. But I want to change CEMS file and Hourly file.
My cems file
EMISINV_A “MODIFIED-FILE_CEMS_WHOLE_YEAR2026-yearly.csv” has data for all the months (JAN TO DEC ,monthly) and yearly (SUM of JAN to DEC in the Column 14).
I have a separate hourly files that has data for each hour, and I use the variable name “EMISHOUR_A” instead of “EMISHOUR_MULTI_A”
The header of the CEMS (yearly and monthly data available) file is
And header of Hourly files has emissions for each hour of each day.
My question is:
When I run ‘one-time’ script for the newly created file, Does it invoke column 14 (annual emission column)?. If so, it wouldn’t be accurate because column 14 is the sum of all months (Jan to Dec) in the new file.
It would be accurate for the EPA winter file
“egucems_epa620_2026_20210609_winter_27jul2021_v0.cs” as column 14 of EPA file is the sum of winter months only.
Or it invokes the monthly column for the winter months if I run a ‘one-time’ script?
I am trying to understand how ‘daily script’ and ‘one-time’ script invokes data from the emission files (specifically which columns from FF10 file).
