Energy-intensive industries can take advantage of process flexibility to reduce operating costs by optimal scheduling of production tasks. In this study we develop a MILP formulation to extend a continuous-time model with energy-awareness to optimize the daily production schedules and the electricity purchase including the load commitment problem. The sources of electricity that are considered are purchase on volatile day-ahead markets, time-of-use (TOU) contracts and base load contracts, as… CONTINUE READING
