Cover Story (view full-size image): Rubber-Tyred Gantry (RTG) cranes demand high power when lifting containers and generate energy when lowering, offering opportunities for reducing the energy consumption by introducing an energy storage device. A supervisory control system can be used to control the storage in order to increase the efficiency. By modelling the crane activity as a stochastic process, it was possible to develop an optimal supervisor for on-board energy storage that greatly reduces energy consumption and peak power demand. Benefits include lower energy costs, lower CO2 emissions and reduced maintenance costs. View this paper
