Publikation: Beitrag in einer FachzeitschriftArtikelForschungBegutachtung

Abstract

Material Flow Systems are core components of intralogistics systems. Optimization of their energy efficiency is an issue of growing importance. At the Institute of Logistics Engineering a 36 month research project was finished in 2014. We present the results of two main areas investigated. The first focal point is a generalized approach for energy efficiency and energy indictors. Indicators of conveyor and automated storage systems are detailed. The specific need and structure of representative operation cycles are illustrated. The second core research goal is on gathering valid optimization potentials of common types of conveyor systems. It is demonstrated that there are enormous potentials to increase efficiency based on electric drive units. Finally we present an outlook on a followup project for extended studies of the verified results over a further 36 month period.
