The energy cost is one of the largest components of operating costs on a belt conveyor system. The majority of papers on energy savings on conveyor systems focus on the mechanical improvement of the conveyor system in order to save energy. In This work the model that was developed to simulate the energy consumption patterns of the conveyor belts will be introduced and explained by means of a case study from industry. The model focuses on load scheduling as a means of energy management rather reducing the amount of energy consumption.
