While real-time control of process plays an important role, it is now increasingly necessary to forecast and plan production systems in order to be energy efficient and to ensure a balance between energy demand and production. In this context, a short-term planning approach of energy supply chain is presented in this paper. Because of the presence of enthalpy balance in the optimization model, the core of this system is based on the formulation and the resolution of a Mixed-Integer Non Linear Programming (MINLP) model. To facilitate the instantiation of this optimization model and its adaptation to different kinds of value chain, a specific graphical formalism named Energy Extended Resource Task Network (EERTN) is exploited. This generic framework makes it possible to model in an unambiguous way the material and energy flows passing through any type of production system. In addition, it takes into account the influence of temperature on the physicochemical phenomena involved in the process. To illustrate the potentiality of this modeling framework, it is applied to a case study aimed at carrying out the operational planning and performance evaluation of a waste heat recovery chain. This system consists, on the one hand of an industrial unit whose heat requirements are provided by a steam utility plant, and on the other hand, of a district heating network (DHN). In this study, the problem consists to optimally plan the energy use of the district heating network by recovering the flus gas (the waste heat) from the industrial site’s power plant. The planning system leads to a significant reduction in the primary fuel consumption of the overall system and an efficient exploitation of the waste heat generated by the industrial site.
