Abstract

Energy flexible manufacturing systems offer new opportunities to deal with upcoming challenges of volatile energy supply. In this context, flexibilization of energy intensive system elements is regarded as promising approach. In particular, technical building services (TBS) such as cooling towers exhibit crucial potentials due to their cross-linking within the manufacturing system. Against this background, technical capabilities and operational strategies for energy flexible management of industrial cooling towers are analyzed, basing upon empiric data from a plant located in Germany. A synergetic approach of data-driven analysis and scenario-based simulation is applied to demonstrate benefits of energy flexible TBS management. Further, an approach for practical implementation is proposed within the concept.
