I have been using SMOKE4.7 and data from here ftp://newftp.epa.gov/air/emismod/2016/v1/. Also, I have used the EPA 2016v1 platform’s SMOKE script for the point electricity generation ( ptegu) sector. In EPA script Annual_ptegu_onetime_winter_12US1_2028fh1_16j.txt (7.5 KB),
the hourly emission file is HOUR_UNIT_2015_12_31dec_2028_adj_final.txt (2.0 KB) which is referenced in SMOKE script as
setenv EMISHOUR_MULTI_A “$CASEINPUTS/cem/HOUR_UNIT_2015_12_31dec_2028_adj_final.txt”
That file does not have actual hourly emissions rather it has some matrix that represents hourly emission (If I am right).
However, Now I have file that has actual hourly raw emissions which I want to use as hourly file flint_hourly.csv (45.4 KB).
When I just replaced the file, SMOKE is giving me an error, So, I changed the variable name
to EMISHOUR_A from EMISHOUR_MULTI_A
And the SMOKE run is successful. My question is: As I change the file (with actual hourly data) and variable name, Do I need to make changes in any other files in the script attached?
