The Sourcing Problem - Energy Optimization of a Multisource Elevator

Abstract

As the interest in regulating energy usage and in the demand-response market is growing, new energy management algorithms emerge. In this paper, we propose a formalization of “the sourcing problem” and its application to a multisource elevator. We propose a linear formulation that, coupled with a low level rule-based controller, can solve this problem. We show in the experiments that a compromise between reducing consumption peaks and minimizing the energy bill has to be reached.
