Introduction -- Manufacturing systems and variable renewable electricity supply -- Existing approaches in the field of energy flexible manufacturing systems -- Manufacturing system real-time energy flexibility control and improvement -- Manufacturing system real-time energy flexibility control and improvement -- Example application -- Summary, critical review and outlook.
This authored monograph provides in-depth analysis and methods for aligning electricity demand of manufacturing systems to VRE supply. The book broaches both long-term system changes and real-time manufacturing execution and control, and the author presents a concept with different options for improved energy flexibility including battery, compressed air and embodied energy storage. The reader will also find a detailed application procedure as well as an implementation into a simulation prototype software. The book concludes with two case studies. The target audience primarily comprises research experts in the field of green manufacturing systems. ..
