Energy Simulation for the Integration of Virtual Power Plants into Production Planning

Abstract : Germany pushes its energy industry towards renewable energy sources which results in an increase of distributed energy generation. Therefore, energy supply will fluctuate more and more and companies need to react to higher and volatile prices as well as to a fluctuating supply of energy. One reaction is to reactively consider these changing prices and supply of energy within production planning and control (PPC). PPC therefore acts as a control unit to integrate volatile energy supply into the production process. Within this paper a scenario is considered where a virtual power plant (VPP) combines different types of distributed energy generation. Energy simulation is then used to demonstrate how fluctuating energy prices can be considered within PPC.
