Hi sir this is the question,
 
 
the source of of emission is the standby diesel set. the generator set is maintained to assure highest efficiency and avoid poor fuel combustion that result to dark emissions. Emission expected from the operation of power generating sets consist of by products from combustion of fossil fuel. these are CO2,Co,NOx,Sox,water vapor, soot particles and traces of unburned hydrocarbons.

pollution loading of generator set
capacity: 550 kw
frequency: 60 Hz
fuel: diesel oil
consumption: 157 liters per hour

assuming that the generator set shall be used for an average of 1 hour per week, its annual fuel consumption(APC) shall be:

AFC = 157 liters/hr * 1 hr/week * 52 weeks/yr
= 8164 liters/yr or 2157 gallon/yr

using table in AP-42 5th edition: item II. internal combustion, sub-item a diesel ; <600 hp or 588.24 kw
the emission factors are:

particulate matters(PM) = 41.49 lbs/1000 gallons of fuel burned
carbon monoxide(CO) = 127.1 lbs/1000 gallons of fuel burned
nitrogen oxide(NO) = 590.2 lbs/1000 gallons of fuel burned
sulfur oxide(SO) = 38.31 lbs/1000 gallons of fuel burned
volatile organic compound(VOC) = 48.18 lbs/1000 gallons of fuel burned

pm loading annually

PM = 2157 gals/yr * ((41.49 lbs)/(1000 gals)) * ((1 metric ton)/(2200 lbs)) = 0.0407 metric ton/yr

CO loading annually

CO = 2157 gals/yr * ((127.1 lbs)/(1000 gals)) * ((1 metric ton)/(2200 lbs)) = 0.125 metric ton/yr

NOx loading annually

NOx = 2157 gals/yr * ((590.2 lbs)/(1000 gals)) * ((1 metric ton)/(2200 lbs)) = 0.579 metric ton/yr

SOx loading annually

SOx = 2157 gals/yr * ((38.31 lbs)/(1000 gals)) * ((1 metric ton)/(2200 lbs)) = 0.037 metric ton/yr

VOC loading annually

VOC = 2157 gals/yr * ((48.18 lbs)/(1000 gals)) * ((1 metric ton)/(2200 lbs)) = 0..040 metric ton/yr


that is my solution and i cant find a way to make its final unit mg/Ncm please help

thanks in advance :) and i wish you luck and can get the answer :-D
