Energy Consumption Analysis of Beer Brewing Process Based on Data Envelopment Analysis
Data envelopment analysis (DEA) method is used for the energy consumption analysis of beer brewing process. First, the energy consumption of multi-batch beer brewing processes is analyzed using the super-efficiency model. Secondly, the optimal interval energy consumption frontier is obtained by sensitivity analysis. And then the optimal energy consumption frontier can be on-line amended, so as to guide the energy consumption of the practical production process. Finally, the application results demonstrate the effective of the proposed method.
