Emissions from new diesel engines used in generator sets have been regulated by the Ministry of Environment and Forests, Government of India [GSR 371(E), 17.05.2002]. The regulations impose type approval certification, production conformity testing and labeling requirements. Certification agencies include: (1) Automotive Research Association of India, (2) Vehicle Research and Development Establishment, and (3) International Centre for Automotive Technology [GSR 280(E), 11.04.2008]. The emission standards are listed below.
|Engine Power (P)||Date||CO||HC||NOx||PM||Smoke|
|P ≤ 19 kW||2004.01||5.0||1.3||9.2||0.6||0.7|
|19 kW < P ≤ 50 kW||2004.01||5.0||1.3||9.2||0.5||0.7|
|50 kW < P ≤ 176 kW||2004.01||3.5||1.3||9.2||0.3||0.7|
|176 kW < P ≤ 800 kW||2004.11||3.5||1.3||9.2||0.3||0.7|
Engines are tested over the 5-mode ISO 8178 D2 test cycle. Smoke opacity is measured at full load.
|2003.07 - 2005.06||150||100||970||75|
Concentrations are corrected to dry exhaust conditions with 15% residual O2.
