I tried to run SMOKE for the ‘ptegu’ sector for 2028 from EPA 2016v1 platform using 2028fh1 version. I used every input files as EPA including scripts.
I successfully simulated ‘ptegu_summer’ and ‘ptegu_winter’ , and cross checked the difference of my run output with the EPA output using ‘inlineto2d’ and ‘m3diff’ tool.
The difference is negligible ( I checked 1 week of May, 1 week of Jan, 1 week of Dec 2016 ) for the Jan-Dec of 2016. The maximum difference is more than a million decimal ( such as 9.53674E-07 for Jan 1).
However, I ran a 10 day SPIN UP run ( 20151222 to 20151231) using this script Dec2015_ADEQ_Annual_ptegu_daily_winter_12US1_2028fh1_16j.csh.txt (7.5 KB) . When I compare the output , the difference is high. I checked for 20151222-20151224, 20151231 . The difference is significantly higher for all of the SPIN UP period.
For example, top three differences for 20151222 , 20151223, and 20151231 are
( 9.99237E+00,9.98373E+00,9.88843E+00), (9.97088E-01, 9.90876E+00,9.89914E-03), and (9.90237E-02, 9.75291E-03, 9.73965E-01) respectively.
Any suggestions why it is happening would be greatly appreciated.
