Abstract

The purpose of this report is to document additional simulations that staff of the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) performed, at the request of staff of the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), to supplement the simulations that NIST performed and reported in NIST Technical Note (TN) 2202 Simulation of Residential CO Exposures from Portable Generators with and without CO Hazard Mitigation Systems Meeting Requirements of Voluntary Standards. These additional simulations used a 15 % longer run time (referred to as "extended run time") for UL 2201 generators than the run times provided in Table 3 of TN 2202 in twelve of the structures documented in TN 2202.
