    Your question is very broad, where in the source code varies for every altcoin. – Willtech Jun 17 '18 at 21:44

Depending on the coin, you can find the PoW algorithm by perusing the source code of the coin. For the coin you referenced, reviewing the directory Chronon/src/pow.cpp one can see the algorithm is X11.
