Simulation of the Energy Consumption of Machine Tools for a Specific Production Task.
In: 19th CIRP International Conference on Life Cycle Engineering, Berkeley, May 23 - 25, 2012, Berkeley, CA USA., [Conference or Workshop Item]

Abstract

This paper describes an approach to simulate the energy consumption of machine tools for a specific production task by modelling the energetic interactions of the machine tools’ components and implementing the models in a simulation environment. By connecting a hardware machine control system with the simulation model, NC-code information is utilized and machine tool specific characteristics of the simulation model behaviour are achieved. Exemplarily, a specific machine tool is modelled and the energy consumption of a production process is simulated. The impact of the implementation of an improvement measure as well as the payback period of the investment is reviewed.
