Industrial applications of production planning with optimal electricity demand
Review articleOpen access
Abstract:

AbstractThe differentiation of the electricity tariff is a way to influence the electricity demand. Savings can be made when part of the electricity demand can be shifted to low-rate periods. However, the optimal production flow is often related to the electricity demand in a non-linear way. For an industry with an approximately linear electricity demand the optimal production schedule implies decreased production to yield a decreased electricity demand. A strongly non-linear electricity demand, on the other hand, may even imply an increased production to yield a decreased electricity demand. The optimal production schedules of three industrial cases are studied in response to two price constructions, represented as two differentiated tariffs.
