The report reviews the effects of transient operating conditions on gaseous emissions from fossil-fuel-fired steam-electric generating plants. Emissions of concern are nitrogen oxides, sulfur oxides, particulates, and visible emissions. Particular attention is given to older coal-fired generators used to provide the cycling portion of the diurnal variation in electricity generated by electric utilities. No consideration is given to flue gas desulfurization processes used to remove sulfur oxides. Transient conditions included in this study are starts, stops, cycling, and upset conditions caused by equipment malfunctions or changes in fuel characteristics or load.
