Energy Consumption Analysis of Beer Brewing Process Based on Data Envelopment Analysis

Abstract:

Article Preview

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.
