An approach for energy-oriented production control using energy flexibility
Due to rising energy costs and growing awareness for green production, many companies expand their energy self-supply by wind or solar energy. To use this self-supply efficiently, producing companies aim to synchronize their energy demand with a limited energy supply. This has to be reflected in the companies' production control strategies. This paper presents a concept for a short-term production control, which treats electric energy as a limited production capacity. The approach makes use of energy flexibility to align energy demand in production with energy supply while maintaining logistic goals.
