Monitoring Approach

The monitoring approach for the two programs are similar. SAIC specified and/or 1 installed the six monitoring systems on the ONSI 200 kW fuel cells. TRC Environmental Corporation performed the emissions monitoring at the three NYSERDA sites. The emissions tests were run at load points from 25% to 100% of rated output in accordance with accepted U.S. Environmental Protection Agency procedures. The monitoring systems specified utilized Campbell Scientific data loggers and a variety of sensors for measuring electric consumption, gas consumption, thermal output, etc.

Data was collected every night via modem and processed at SAIC's offices. NYSERDA and USACERL have access to the database of monitored data. On a periodic basis, a performance summary report is prepared.
